I have shown this quilt a few times on my blog. It is finally bound and ready to be washed. It doesnt photograph very well but believe me, it is very soft and pretty in person. It is my very first string quilt and I kinda love it a lot and I was at odds with myself about giving it away. But I have decided to give it as a "thinking of you" gift to my youngest girl cousin on my maternal side. She has had a hard time lately and I hope it will brighten her day.
