Plaids rule the roost!!

Good morning to all!  I have been playing the strings, again.  I love strings, and plaid strings...what could possibly be better?  I need to applique more heart blocks!  If you look below, this plaid quilt came from a far different place than my plaids...but they all just go together, like magic!  
Speaking of plaids...a great treat is at my house!  PLAID STRINGS!!  And I did not make this quilt...

 But Joan did!!!  I just love it...she makes quilts, and I was lucky enough to purchase one from her...IN PLAIDS!!!  I am in great love with it!  It is made from shirt fabrics, mostly, and it is so soft and lovely.  Drapable and seems just like a quilty hug.  Joan asked me if I was buying this for someone, for a gift...NOPE!  This one stays with me!

Have a lovely day!

Dear Julie, the quilt I made for you is ALL upcycled men’s shirts for the front and binding. Only the backing is not. It is luscious Thimbleberries though! So glad you like it!

The first picture is so you: hearts and plaids = Julie! The quilt you bought is fantastic. I just LOVE that border with the block at the corners... just WOW! Great purchase! And yes, you did buy it as a gift, a gift to your favorite nurse who works so hard and needs this quilt: YOU! You deserve it. Enjoy! ;^)

The hearts and plaid strings could be your signature quilt.;)
And the quilt you bought from Joan is a winner. Love the border treatment. I don't blame you for keeping that one!

Nice quilt from Joan. You deserve to treat yourself. Glad you got some of your sister's quilts, too (sorry, I'm playing catch up with my blog reading).
