String Drive 2019: Round 1
Happy weekend, quilters! The first round of string quilts from the Jan/Feb drive are ready for show and tell. All these quilts were assembled and quilted by volunteers other than me. (Thanks ladies!)
This year's string drive was extremely successful, with over 700 blocks sent in. I'm expecting we'll eventually have something like 25 finished quilts.
A few folks have volunteered to help finish quilts from this blocks drive again. Tammy S. made these two quilts from donated blocks and backing that I shipped to her.
These last two quilts were assembled by Nancy and quilted by her friend Jenn.
Nancy always does creative things with the blocks I send to her and Jenn has a long arm for quilting.
Beautiful backing fabrics donated by volunteers!
These blue blocks were sent in by Jeanine, assembled by Nancy, and quilted by Jenn. I'm counting them as part of the block drive, since they were sent around the same time.
Thank you Nancy, Jenn, Jeanine, Tammy, and everyone who has sent in backings and blocks to the drive! Looking forward to many more quilts from another successful string drive!
