Quilt Finish Friday

As I'm cleaning out my sewing room this year, I've been finding projects and kits I forgot that I had.  I turned an "I no longer love this idea" quilt kit into a "can I keep this?" quilt!


As this is a 70th birthday gift for a friend, the answer is "no," but I'm still tickled at how this turned out.

The original kit had over a hundred 2 1/2" strips in it, and I discovered that I could use them to make my Stepping Stones Cutie Quilt.  After adding some background and fun quilting, I have this quilt and another million (ok, maybe 80) 2 1/2" strips of lovely Fig Tree fabrics.

Should I make another quilt exactly like this?  Or should I see what else I can make from 2 1/2" strips.

My answer to your question is ... Do Both... do another one and also design one with the use of your 2 1/2" strips. Can't wait to see the next fabulous quilt from you!

Did you sew strips together then subcut? I have tons of jelly rolls & would love to try this pattern. I’d love to see more of your quilting videos. I have one in my que to watch now. You inspire me to try.🤗❤️

That's really pretty. The background makes it easier to sew, and also gives the eye lots of spaces to rest.

I think you should make some more like this! I think I need to buy that pattern.
