pink string quilt on chair outside

I did finish a quilt this past week! That's exciting for me as I haven't had a finish in awhile. This string quilt was made back here.

It immediately went into my 'to quilt' pile which moves very slowly. Then in March
of this year, Joanne offered a Quilters Stimulus deal. I was fortunate to have my name put on her list. Here she shows the latest quilts she has done and mine is among them. I finished the binding on Friday and it feels so good to have accomplished something quilty. Thanks again to Joanne for her generosity and fine work.

What a gorgeous quilt, Jeanne. Of course I love it -- pink, my favourite colour!

This really is a happy looking quilt! I can just imagine you sitting on the deck in those white adirondack chairs sewing down the binding!
Congrats on a UFO finish!

Jeanne - you are so brave to post your stash report. I think its great that people are talking about our addiction - lets get it all out there in the open - (big grin) - thank you so much for sharing!

The quilt is very cheerful and beautiful. My UFO pile has shrunk a little this year. I am down to 35 I think from 41.

I just love that pink quilt, there is something about pink quilts that I adore. I will have to make another one. I love that pattern.

It looks great! How nice that you were able to get it quilted by Joanne. What a lovely donation it will make.
