Someone gave these home dec strips away a few years back at a guild meeting I attended and who am I to say no? The top sat around for quite some time while I quilted for customers, grandchildren, and friends.

The post title really says it all. I saw the technique somewhere on the internet and decided i had to try it. It is far simpler than it appears at first glance and it's a great way to use up leftovers. I might get brave and try a scrappy version in the near future.

I found an inexpensive jelly roll at a variety store last November. The colors were interesting but I wasn't in the mood for fancy piecing. A friend pointed out this pattern to me and it seemed appropriate for these fabrics.
WHOOSH! the top went together in no time.
I have a pretty extensive stash that goes fairly far back in time, but even still i was surprised when i found this perfect border fabric right there in the stash. A tiny bit of planning made the repeats come out very nicely.
A sunburst design with variegated polyester thread made short work of the quilting, which can be seen well from either side of the quilt.
Yellow and orange striped binding also came from the stash and was OFG's idea.
Spring time quilting at it's most fun. Thanks for stopping by!

Yeppers, got a new toy and now I'll be grossly unproductive in every phase of my life for the next several weeks while I play with it like crazy!

Small pieces cut on the bias made these blocks challenging to work with, but a little starch and a little patience paid off.
Don't ask me why the dark star.
This quilt was sold before it was finished and will be winging it's way to the Windy City next week. Sometimes it's hard to let them go.

Serious hat tip to Lori Kennedy of The Inbox Jaunt for her really cool christmas doodles from a couple years ago.
And with the addition of some grinchy flannel for the back (which you can just see peeking out the corner in the picture below...
