Strips, a Finished Flimsie


It's colorful, to say the least. After a black stop border to contain the riot of color, the outer border is magenta with orange dots. The colors are reading a little warm in the photo above taken during the "golden hour" but are more true in the shot below.

From an annoying baggie of strips that I kept moving around on my cutting table, this really turned out okay. With borders, it finished about 52 x 62" for a lap quilt or a good size for a donation quilt for a kid.

And one more photo because, wow. The sun was glowing through the fabric as it was hanging from my deck rail.

  10. That stained glass effect is great! The polka dot border works so well with all the colors, and the stop border contains it all while echoing the little black squares. Such a fun use of annoying strips :)

  11. It is a riot of color, but just the way I like it! It has to feel good to finally have that bag of strips off your cutting table.

  12. I think this is a warm and happy quilt! I really like the way you put both a black square and a white square between each colorful strip. It really gives your quilt a lot of movement!

  15. PS. Did you make this top jelly roll race style? Or just sew the strips one row at a time? However you did it, the top looks wonderful!
