Finally a String Quilt and My Only Finished Phd

I finally finished a string project! I didn't sew squares as most people did, instead I decided to do strips. This was a tremendously fun quilt to make and fast. I don't know why I waited so long. I used scraps from a quilt that I made for my niece for her wedding. I'm going to hang it in my sewing room. Let me know what you think! 
The other quilt is my one and only Phd finish. Both challenges end today and although I didn't get as much done as I hope to, I'm still very happy to have joined in and finished these quilts. Thank you Stephanie and Myra for hosting!

Both are beautiful, Jill. I especially love that string quilt - the fabrics are fanta-bulous!

Thanks for taking part in my challenge, and good luck in the giveaway!

Hi Jill,
The strip string quilt looks like a crazy quilt. It looks neat. I like your Christmas quilt too. You used great fabrics in it.

I've never seen a string quilt done that way but I have to say I love it.
Such pretty colours too.
