I'm sending it off to Tanya for her collection of quilts for the nursing home in her town. I'll enjoy picturing a senior citizen getting lots of comfort from this quilt!

Scraptastic Tuesday Link-Up
I am often just a bit behind the times when it comes to discovering all the different linky parties that are available around the blogiverse, and today I just checked out Scraptastic Tuesday. So fun! So I decided to write up a quick new post about this finish from a couple of weeks ago so that I could link up. This is my Scrappy Strings quilt:
Before this quilt I had never made string blocks before, and it turns out that they are great fun! I combined my scraps of green, orange, light blue, and gray for these blocks, and then added a cream tone on tone for the border.

I love seeing this quilt again. Great setting with all that lovely quilted negative space.
The one and only string quilt I made, funnily enough, was Cynthia's scrap-a-palooza pattern too, and went to a seniors' residence too!! Great minds, right?
This is simply beautiful. Another one I'd like to make. Thank you.
I do so love this quilt. I would cry sending it away from my house! But yes, I can picture a senior citizen getting great comfort from it. :)
Great quilt. The contrast of the busy-ness (and lovely colors) of the string blocks against the large neutral surrounding really makes it the quilt stand out.
Hello, thanks for visiting my blog, I thought I would just pop in on you too. I love this method and your diagonal quilting adds some lovely lines. Congratulations on a super quilt!
Great scrap quilt and a very nice gift! I 'm sure it will bring some smiles and happiness to someone! cheers!
Really pretty! I love how the design is centered in the middle of the white!
OOh! I love this quilt!
