Strip Quilt

Have you ever heard of the blog Film in the Fridge? Well, it's a little piece of fabulousness. Ashley does some great quilts in really beautiful colors and fabrics. Lately she's been on a kick of strip quilts. I can't get enough of these, especially her latest ones out of Flea Market Fabrics. Man, I've got to get my hands on some of that!

Well, this is my adaptation of a strip quilt, but I did it like a giant string block. Started in the middle and worked my way out. Quilts as you go, serged the edges so putting on the binding would go smoother too. Now I'm adding some simple hand quilting to jazz it up a bit. Will post pics when I'm done with that and the binding. Better get hopping as the baby shower that I'm making this for is this Saturday - out of town! Wish me luck!

  2. Don't you just love how quick and easy that kind of quilting is? Your monkeys and bright colors will fascinate a little one! I'm sure the mom will love it too! ---"Love"
