Thank you for your visit, friends! I have previously shown on my blog all my quilts that I have made so far, so I thought I could show a work in progress, my latest Plaid Madness string quilt! Thank you so kindly for your visit, and have a super day!

Ohh, yummy! Gosh now this is one you can really get underneath and snuggle. I love the smashing sashing, too. That looks so neat, Julie. Very well done. Of course we know that's not a surprise. You're a "well done" quilter for sure. Hmmm, not sure if that sounds right at all. Maybe I should think of a different adjective... hee!

Love your take on a string quilt. Wonderful.

I just love this -- I'm going to post a photo on the HeartStrings site and link back to your post -- I hope that's OK but if not, please let me know and I'll remove the photo -- this is just the type of quilt our HeartStrings quilters love.

Not 'madness' - it's 'deliciousness' *s*

Lovely! I've been saving my husband's ruined shirts, but I don't have enough for something like this yet!
