I love strippy quilts! Since I have been following along with Lori’s (Humble Quilts) string quilts sew-a-long I thought it would be fun to make a mini with some spring green and colorful strips. I know most people associate Spring with pastels, but I lean more toward the bright and bold colors! I adore the peachy orange tulips positioned next to those dark delicious purples. Yum! (sorry - no photo - nothing but the early tulips out yet).
Once again, I raided the orphan block box and started chopping strips.
The backing is the last of a piece of fabric that my husband found for me in 1986. It was the first and last time he bought me fabric!I have cherished it and the last little scrid will now go into the "pieces too small to use but too special to throw away" box. Yes, I am crazy, but I'm guessing some of you do the same thing!
Click on these blog sites to see the many marvelous minis of April. If I have overlooked anyone, please let me know. They are all sensational this month! I love them all!! Barbara's quilt is adorable, but her story makes it even more special! And Janet actually made two small quilts this month.
