Lots of yummy green fabrics in various strips.
I'd been seeing lots of lovely strip quilts over on flickr and thought I'd have a go at one myself. I've come to the conclusion that complicated, intricate piecing and me finished quilts are not for me. I much prefer making simple quilts because I stand a chance of finishing them. Is it boring though? To only want to make quilts with simply arranged strips, squares or triangles? This quilt was made from randomly cut bands of width of the fabric half yard cuts. As I didn't have enough half yard cuts I had to cut up fat quarters and to add a bit of interest I mismatched fat quarter cuts.
There are lots of lovely fabrics in this quilt from designers such as American Jane, Momo, Laurie Wisbrun, Kaffe Fassett, Denyse Scmidt and Valori Wells.
You have to have a rolled up quilt shot don't you?
In case you're wondering this quilt is lap sized. It's bound in a bella solid in a shade of green I've forgotten. I didn't take any pictures of the back, but it's a Riley Blake (I think) green flannel with red and blue spots on it. I'm not convinced I did a very level job of trimming this quilt. I had a complete mental block - I welcome any tips or advice on squaring up tops prior to basting. There is also a dodgy area of binding where the ends met due to some of the dodgy trimming...But we'll over look a few little errors because it's snugly and just perfect to curl up under these spring days when the sun has gone in and there is still a nip in the air.
I can't wait to see what you've all been finishing!
