    I have had a busy week and got 3 quilts finished to donate to the Cancer Society. I also designed this cute owl, sewed from fleece and very soft and cuddly.

    #1-string quilt backed with fleece and no batting. First time I have used fleece and love how it turned out.

    Everything is wonderful. The string quilts are beautiful and I will use fleece in a quilt soon. Thanks for the idea. Thank you also for your thoughtfulness and giving to a worthy cause. I know you will be blessed because of it.

    My, you've been busy! My all time favorite pattern, I guess..., is the string quilt. So fast and turn out so pretty. But, I also love the one made of scrubs. Bright colors, novelty fabrics! Nice jobs on all of them...Mr. Owl too!

    love the string quilts you made, I just finished up a set of string items myself.Really fun and fast.Wonderful cause you helped out there, good for you.
    Where did HOOTY come from very adorable. Was he a pattern or did you make him out of your head?? I would love to have the Hooty pattern?? Would that be possible??
    Great job!!

    Thank you for your kind comments. I spray basted the fleece as it is quite stretchy. Doesn't move one inch and gives a nice light quilt. I don't do overkill on the quilting as the blocks are on foundation. I stitched on each side of the blue striping. Then I quilt a square where the 4 corners meet and something in the wider blue border. I did random 1/2 squares in the outerborder. You will love the fleece backing.
