Christmas String Quilt

I had made this top over a year ago but I thought it needed to be bigger.

I had plenty of scraps to make it larger.

And I even had some extra blocks made.

So now it just adding some to it.

I had done a tutorial on this quilt and if you would like the pattern just go here.

And when I'm done with this one I have another string top I started that I needs to be finished.
Isn't it wonderful.

Commissioned Strings

I had an order for a string quilt and when I was finished with this top...
I thought maybe I'd better give more of a subdued choice to the client.

So, I did this one...
He liked the first one better.  Both are at the quilter's now.  They will be so much better when quilted!

Thank you!!!

I received the final packages of blocks today for our Half Log Cabin Challenge.  Big thank-yous to to Sharon, Evelyn, and Brenda for supporting this project with their bright fun blocks! I'll be assembling these blocks into a cheerful comfort quilt for an adult at our domestic violence shelter. 

I also received a bonus package from Julianne, containing a happy assortment of 9-patch blocks.  These will also be used to make comfort quilts for kids at the Doves shelter.  I'll post photos here of all the quilts as they develop.

It warms my heart, at this time when we're all saddened by the senseless violence in Boston, to have received all these blocks.  Thank you all for your generosity and kindness!

Hi friends! 
Just a final reminder that our half log cabin challenge will be ending very soon.  I don't think any more blocks are on their way ... and I'm ready to start assembling the ones I've received.  If you're still planning to mail some blocks, please let me know asap.  Otherwise, I'll get busy with the ones I have.
Thanks ~ Jeanne
