My favorite quilt is the string quilt. I return to it so often. It seems so simple--just sew some strips on a piece of muslin. But, the putting them together is where the surprise comes in. I had some purple scraps and this came from them.
An old friend from high school cheerleading loved this, so it will be sent to her as a reminder of our friendship.
Of the three high school friends I have, two of them have lost their husbands within the last six months. This one is for Sue. It started out as mine, but her husband was such a bright spot in everyone's life, I decided I'll send this to her as a remembrance of his bright and cheerful personality.
