ODE TO STRING!!! for the scrappy gals


At last!!!!, here are the pictures of my challenge quilt which I called Dizzy Diamonds. Our guild does a challenge every year and this year the challenge was to make a quilt using "strings". In addition, the quilt had to include ORANGE and use of your stash was encouraged. My quilt was entirely from my stash except for the navy blue borders which are hard to see and the backing. I made this quilt for my DS's bed and he actually likes it!!  Posted by Picasa

It's an absolutely great string quilt Ann...I love it!! I certainly can see why you son is adoring it.
It's happy and comfortable looking, not at all pretentious, but also like of "guy" looking. Great job!!! Hugs, Finn
