take three.

My string blocks are all gone.
This is the third and last quilt top using those
LOVELY blue strings!!!
Don't you love that little bit of red in there???
I do too.
I once read that every quilt needs a little red.
I wonder if that's true and who said it????
It stuck with me and I often put a little red in...
JUST BECAUSE!

Here they are together!!!
Two of them need to grow a little bit....
But don't they look nice??

You'll be seeing these quilts again in the future.
I'm going to fold them up....
Dream about a couple of borders....
and then in May I'll quilt them!!!
After that......
we'll give them away to the graduates in JUNE!!
Woo Hoo!!!

I ran across pictures from the
high school graduates receiving quilts last year and
thought you might like to see some of the kids!!!

Now you know why I LOVE giving these away.
Happy FACES!!!

  2. You're right, that pop of red adds to the appeal. I love all your string quilt versions, Beth. Three gorgeous and creative takes that are a clever way to use up strings.

  3. Lucky grads all! Your string quilts look fabulous. Each so different, but equally wonderful.

  5. All three quilts are wonderful!!! You've done a beautiful thing with your blue strings (along with a touch of red), and I'm sure this year's graduates will be just as happy with their quilts as last year's!

  16. Wow, they just keep getting better and better. I think Quilt #3 is my favorite. And yes, love the bits of red in there. That really makes the quilt sing.

    What happy faces - there will be more this year, based on what you've shown us! I think that's a wonderful idea.
