Me "What's Brenda's favorite color?
Dave "I don't know. Reds?" "Orange?"
(me to myself... "that doesn't sound right")
Me "What colors does she wear most often?"
Dave "Black and pink."
OK.... so I pulled every pink fabric in my stash along with some blacks and greys. I decided to do a quilt I saw on YouTube from Missouri Star Co. ( Let me tell you, if you are a perfectionist this is not a pattern for you I should know that, for me anyway, quick, shortcuts equal no perfection ) Anyway, I cut strips... sewed, cut some more and sewed some more.
Now that it's done... I really do like it!
W&N batting. King Tut on top and Glide in the bobbin. Quilting is simple swirls... I love the texture they create!
When laying out the blocks I tried to created X's and O's with fabric placement... I want to wrap Brenda in Hugs and Kisses.
I used the left over strips to make a piano key border...
The rest of the left over fabric went on the back... sometimes I have more fun making the back than I do the front!
I bought this cat fabric a few years ago to make Pj bottoms... never got round to it. It was purr-fect for this quilt!!!

I finished this String Quilt yesterday for one of my best customers....
I love the texture created from the simple swirls. Adds so much movement to the design.
I used Superior King Tut thread on the top and FilTech Glide in the bobbin. It's the first time I used this combination and I love it! Perfect tension!!!
