Blue for January

I just finished a string quilt I'd finally gotten around to.  I completed the top in January.  The strings were stored in a plastic shoe box.  They have been from two or three previous projects. 

I have to say, I always love the blues and purples and the turquoise is a bonus color for me.  Dang, I wish I had a place for this, but it will be a donation quilt.

 The quilting was free form and I found myself making little swirls where the corners met!  It's been awhile since I finished a quilt!

The top before quilting:

This was the last one I completed.  It was for my granddaughter and started with the strings left over from a project a year ago.

Love both those quilts! The meandering quilting really suits the purple quilt.

I like the blues with the purple too! I agree finishes don't come very often so when they do we need to celebrate!

This is a beautiful quilt that will certainly be loved. How gracious of you to donate it.
