    Quilt for my Third Aunt!

    I have three aunts.

    I made a quilt for the first when she was moving to the COLD north--made it of flannel to keep her warm this winter (like people in New York have never heard of central heating! ).

    I made my second Auntie quilt for my aunt who loves the color lavender from the Falling Charms pattern with charms from the "Lovely" line.

    This third quilt is for my third aunt--a string quilt--something I've not done before. Had a bit of trouble with the borders, but it turned out okay with a little intense quilting! I'm still learning to quilt on my DSM, so it is far from perfect, but it is certainly cheerful. The center strings are more green than the picture indicates.

    Now on to the nieces and nephews!

    Hi, love it, I'm an under appreciated aunt, will you adopt me.
    Love the aqua in it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love the aqua used for the binding as well as the sashings between your colorful blocks, makes the whole piece so well coordinated. A great idea for all of us to .... well, copy! Thanks for posting this.

    What a thoughtful niece you are. I'm sure your aunts think you're the best. Great job on the string quilt. I just love scrappies.
