Machine pieced and quilted
Backed with fleece
56 by 64 inches
Made by members of String Thing Along blog.
Thanks to many of you, Anything Goes is pieced and quilted.
Our little experiment in using up all kinds of bits and pieces
in string blocks is lovely, just as I predicted.
You can see that the centre strips vary in size and intensity,
as do the other strips.
I strip pieced it onto a fleece backing,
quilted in the black diagonal strips
and brought the black fleece to the front to frame it.
I'm donating it to the Katie Cares Foundation in Winkler, Manitoba, CANADA.
Katie Reimer, 14, started the foundation after she was diagnosed with cancer.
She wanted to help other kids suffering from cancer by providing supplies and equipment to them.
I'm hoping this colourful throw-sized quilt will bring comfort to a child with cancer.
Sadly, Katie left this world on Saturday, but her dream to help other children lives on.
My teenage niece was friends with Katie for many years,
and I'm giving this to her to pass on to the foundation.
After my niece saw the quilt, she said:
"Katie would think this quilt is AWESOME."
Thanks to all of you for participating.
I linked this my post about this quilt to the Bloggers Quilt Festival
to spread the gospel of string quilts to the blogging world.
