Yesterday I cut 50 2-1/2" strips out of my Christmas fabric stash, and used them today to made a jelly roll strippy quilt. Whew. That's hard on the ol' shoulders! :shock:
I like the quilt top overall, but two of my red strips ended up right beside each other, and end in exactly the same spot. Meh! :roll:
Does it look bad? Yeah, I think it does, too. I'm probably going to take one of the strips out and replace it with a different color, and shorten one of the strips above it so that they don't end in exactly the same place. Every time I look at the quilt top, my eye jumps right to those red strips.
Of course, if I'd been TRYING to match them up like that, it wouldn't have worked! LOL! :lol:
Guess I'll have a date with Mr. Seam Ripper later this evening. ;-)
Here's a photo, but it's kind of dark. My camera's battery is fizzled. Some of the fabrics have metallic outlining, and some have glitter. It's prettier in person ... except for those dingdang red strips! :lol:
