I finished Miss Ru's string quilt last night and put it in the washer, then the dryer. This morning it came out of the dryer and went right on her bed.
She was really happy with it and with this fleece backing. Can you tell that she likes purple?
Somehow I ended up with six of the string blocks left over. And for some reason they were smaller than all the rest. How could that have happened?
Anyway, I turned them into three mug rugs for her. These are the fronts,
and these are the backs. A girl has got to be coordinated, you know?
Only one of the flower appliques actually made it onto the quilt. But it IS purple.
It just is a happy quilt. There are lots of fun fabrics in here, lots of bright colors and lots of love sewn right into it. Miss Ru has had a rough month, so maybe this will take a little of the rough edge off.
I do hope all the rough edges are being taken off for you, too!
Hugs and kisses,
