    First Ever String Quilt Finally Completed

    It seemed like it took me months to complete but I finally did it. Measures 64" x 53" so it will make a great lap quilt.
    I used a yellow sheet for backing and then appliqued a few flowers. I wanted to use whatever I had in my stash and did not want to buy anything new for this quilt.
    I think it turned our awesome!

    I love it! Such a cheerful quilt.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I love it! I've never seen a string quilt done with the stripes of color like that, and I think it's an awesome idea.

    That is beautiful. I haven't seen one done that way before.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
