Flea Market Fancy string quilt finished

I actually finished this quilt over a week ago, but I had to wait until I got my clothesline back up to take pictures :)   You see, my clothesline was no-more after the 'tail hold' tree was removed due to it's lean over the garage.

So, I went and picked up a pressure treated 4x6 and some lag screws, and hubby cut a flat spot in the stump to bolt the timber to.  I am SO happy to have my clothesline back up!

I should have taken the ladder down before I took the picture, but you get the idea.  The clothesline goes from my second story back deck, so it has lots of lift on that end.  It does need to have a support between the clothesline, but it doesn't sag enough for the quilts to touch the ground, so that's all that matters :)

I love the texture of the swirl quilting.  This quilt has not been washed yet (I will let the new owners have the priveledge), and I have yet to add a label.  I am waiting until closer to a wedding that I think this will be the wedding gift for :)  Although I kinda want to keep it, I love it so much!  Can't keep them all though :)  Gotta give/sell some of them so I can continue to make MORE :)
