String Quilts again

I am done with the quilting on my enormous king size red, white, and blue string quilt. The binding will keep me busy for a very long time.
 The next two quilts I quilted were pieced by Kim for her first granddaughter.
 
Blue soft minkee fabric for the backing.
This is the second baby quilt with her initial "L".

I quilted this circle quilt for Angie. I like the random hand sewn circles on the quilt.


 Marinell's red and white quilt.
The red and white backing is perfect for this quilt.
Another quilt I quilted. It is a modern twist on a traditional pattern.

 I finished the binding on the blue string quilt and the 1930's Disappearing Four Patch.
 I have the blue string quilt at the bottom of my bed.
 A Roman Stripe String quilt is on my bed.
 String quilt is soft and crinkled after the first wash.
 Washed 1930's quilt.

 Three yo-yo's in the corner to cover up a mistake. 
I cut into the border while squaring up the quilt up. Oops!
 Happy Quilting,
Millie

Love the before, and after photos! How snuggly they become after a wash & dry!

Oh Millie, another eye-candy filled blog post. You have been busy! I really like your huge R/W/B string quilt. Yo-yo cover-ups, great idea. I may use a yo-yo or two to cover up some spots where a black fabric bled on a kids quilt.

Your quilts are beautiful as always, Millie, and I would have never known the yo yo's were to cover a mistake. :)

Merry Christmas!
