Strings and Things


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.

I love your string pieces. That orange one is a perfect gift, just the bright spot she will need right now.
