    String Quilt for fundraiser

    Back in June some kind ladies on the board sent me strings so I could make a string quilt for a fundraiser. I said I would post the end result here. Well, here is the quilt. Thank you to all who helped me out. A little girl won the quilt and I am sure it will be well loved.

    Wonderful quilt and it may inspire a young girl to try her hand at quilting too.

    That lime really does make this pop! I think lime green is sorely underrated, don't you?> I know it looks fabulous in this awesome quilt! Great job!
