Final Inspection

The Streak Of Lightning string quilt is completed, and has been given the stamp of approval by # 1 Inspector Polly. She checked out all the seams, the quilting, and especially noted whether any of that enticing Polly-ester batting was poking through in any spots (to her dismay, it wasn't). We will show you the finished quilt after next weekend when it is given to the recipient (who, by the way, knows Polly and will enjoy her contribution to this quilt.)


  1. Oh you are a brave woman making an entire quilt out of string blocks. Glad Polly gave it the stamp of approval too. Looks great all done in blues.

  2. Awesome! Wish I could start and finish a quilt in lickety-split time like you did with this one. I have 4 string quilt tops still waiting to be quilted!

  3. Kitties are very good quilt inspectors! Our cats are taking notes from Polly.....not that they need much help, they do very well already.

  4. Karen - the recipient and his mom are completely thrilled and in "awe" over the quilt - this is the nicest gift EVER! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - Sam will cherish this for many many years to come - Thank You so much for this unbelievably thoughtful gift!
