Busy,Busy,Busy

I have been busy working on quilts the past few weeks.With so many different things I like to do I have not quilted for quite awhile and I have had a lot of fun..
I have a large tote full of strips of cotton and decided I would do a couple of string quilts. They are so much fun and very addictive.However, the tote of strings seems to be as full as ever!!I imagine there must be another 25 quilts in the future!


 This is the spider web design..I chose a lovely deep red for the centres.. It got larger than I planned...I said they were fun to do! I am not putting a border on this one as it already measures 80.5" x 80.5". I am a hand quilter but I think I will machine quilt this one... Yet to be decided.
 .

 This is another string quilt with black centres and a diamond design. Isn't it pretty! the black really makes the colors pop.This one too needs borders and that is what I will be working on to-day.





  

This is  the bear paw design. I chose black/brown and butterscotch for this one.It still needs a couple of borders. When I am finished with this one it will got to "Victorias Quilts" . I am a supporter of this charity as
volunteers make quilts for cancer patients and treatment centers.

Oh my they are lovely. I hope to get back to quilting soon but watercolors are keeping me busy. I hope you get this message. Blogger has been screwing up my messages to people. Again I am loving your quilts.
