Did some cutting last night, from my whole 30's stash i made some fat 1/8ths: 9" by 21".
They will be part of a swap. So I was left with the remains of those strips, and they must have been in the back of my mind... Today after dinner I decided to try out a new design.
16 remaining strips in 5 rows
sewing the strips
cutting a few strips in 6.5" + 2.5" and a few in 2* 4.5"
rearranging on the batting
and sewing together all the strips
The top was done in less than two hours. And I like it. A utility quilt top, quite girly...
I am sure this will work well in different style fabric and colorscheme. Fun and easy. A quickly made christmas gift? (OK - I know I have to quilt it, too..)
