    Here are some more of my quilts and a very special member of my family :P

    This is Patches. She lost her leg last September (animal/car?) She's a very expensive mutt but she was worth every penny we spent to have her fixed up. She walks, runs and jumps just fine.

    My Irish Chain. I had originally tied it but decided to machine quilt in the ditch

    I love them all, but partial to the Irish Chain, such yummy colors.
    Patches looks like a sweetie, too! :D

    Love the string quilt!!! I added your picture to my (evergrowing) list of projects. I will have to live to be about 200 in order to have time to do them all :lol:

    Sorry, it was from an old magazine, but the general idea is
    1. Sew strips together (say 6") to any length you want
    2. Take any square ruler and cut out 1/2 square triangles (vertical) and sew 4 of them together to make a square. The larger the ruler, the larger the square.
    3. Cut a piece of plain material the same size as the string square and sew together

    I hope this helps
    Sharon

    Very pretty quilts. I love your cat. Sorry he got hurt. When I got my cat as a kitten I trained him to be on a long line (length of back yard) He wears a halter. The vet suggested it when I lost my last cat due to poisening him. My cat doesn't mind it at all. 4 yrs old now. :D

    Nice quilts---I love the setting for your string quilt and how you quilted in between the blocks.
