Plaid String Quilt - with a Twist!

I finished!! Finished!! Whoot Whoot - as in it is Quilted, Bound and ALL DONE!!

 While I was waiting for kids somewhere I made a list - this is the 3rd of 6 plaid quilt projects I have started this year.  The very first one was a Quilt of Valor ....  And I actually know where each of the others are in their progress!!

I quilted it with spiral Squares -  I thought that would be fun do due it's geometry ish ness ( new word! I just invented it!)

And the back - it is a lot of plaid with little Looney Tune Characters dancing across the top!!



Here is a close up - they make me laugh!!
This quilt is for sale:



This is one of my alyof goals for November - so yay!

Alycia, I just LOVE this quilt! All those warm colors and textures are so great! Love the backing you did too. :)

The colors in that quilt radiate warmth. Odd that browns and golds seem to do that for me more than red.

I like the fractured look of the string squares and the off centered arrangement. And yes, as others have said, it looks warm and inviting.
