Default 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!
