String Quilt Challenge … Finished!

Wow, this is a really scrappy, busy quilt!  I did an all-over loopy meander design.  I tried to keep it simple since there is so much going on with the top.  I was going to use a 101 Dalmatians bed sheet for the backing, but instead I used a really cute Raggedy Ann-Andy print that I found in my stash.  It has a medical theme and the characters are dressed as doctors and nurses.  I thought this’d be appropriate since I am donating this to Project Linus and the quilt will be going to the Loma Linda hospital.

I’m posting this on Stephanie’s Loft Creations blog and her No Strings Attached challenge; and I’m also participating in Stacie’s It’s a String Thing Challenge.

Just want to share photos of the string quilts I made for my grandchildren for Christmas 2008.  The one on the left is a Spider Web design from a Quilt In A Day book:

And, like any good quilter, I have a couple of WIP projects.  Another nickel quilt … this is Tillie’s Treasures.  Still working on the layout:

I’m also working on this Bouillabaisse quilt top.  Started it in September so I hope I can finish it up over the next month or so:

Until next time … keep on piecing!
