My Blue Strip patchwork


I made this little quilt with all the left over bits from other quilts. I cut them into 2 inch wide strips and sewed them together. It just sort of made itself, no real planning, but I do like the finished result. Lots of favourite fabrics from other projects all ending up together . Press on picture to enlarge, You will see my tacking stitches, as its not quite finished yet.

Wow ! It's lovely ! My daughter just said "Mum can you make me one !" hmmm...I don't think I'm up to that. Mine would be all "wibbly wobbly" with the patches not lining up properly !Beautiful colours.

Good morning, Milly. I love your little patchworks - especially the unfinished one. You sound like me - I have too many projects on the go...but I rationalize it by tellin myself that it is insurance against ever finding myself with nothing to do!

I just love your quilts, Milly! I see the same attention to detail and color that you bring to your paintings. So lovely : )
