A very pretty quilt!!

At last! I have been trying to figure out how to get this picture from an e-mail to my blog!! Success!! Donna D, of Hemet California, sent and shared this gorgeous quilt...recognize the pattern, LOL?? Donna made her quilt from bright scrappy strings, and pretty nine patches. I love her quilt!!
Here is her border...so this all goes to show...you can do the great Plaid String quilt along...in other fabrics than plaids! I think a batic one would be just gorgeous!!! Thank you so much, Donna, for sharing your wonderful quilt!!


I am madly working on nine patches for my cornerstones, and will show some pictures later today.


Have a super day!!

What a great modification! Wouldn't it be beautiful in batiks and florals? Yum!

Oh, I love this quilt. Very, very prety quilt - great use of scraps and such.

I am Donna's partner, and my name is Phil. I'm one of those quilter "widowers!" But I so love the quilts she makes for us and for others she loves. So proud to see your quilt in Julie's blog, darling Donna!

That looks cool! I have a new boost for making mine as that quilt looks like some of mine I am making.
