String quilt for charity

 This is a quilt I made for the charity that my guild supports - CASA - comfort quilts for children taken from their homes for various reasons.  It is Bonnie Hunter's String-X pattern, found here.  I used up tons of strings, and it seems like I hardly made a dent in my bin!  The entire quilt was made from stash - the backing is a donation from a friend's mom.  I quilted a floral/hook pattern in the open spaces, and lines or hooks in the string sections.  It's 52 x 66.

Maddisen's T-shirts

Theses are Maddisen's high school memories.  The sashings and border are black with white dots.  the cornerstones and backing are purple with swirls.  So I quilted it with swirls using black thread in the sashings, and a simple meander in the shirts using white thread.  It's 77 x 91.
