    Mile-A-Minute Strip quilts

    I have always wanted to do some of the mile-a-minute strip quilts and have even separated out several sets of strips just for this. I stopped after doing the third one because the quilts were not wide enough (only about 36" each). So these have been on hold for a little while, but with borders, these are about twin-sized. I think they turned out pretty good considering--What do you think?

    Here is one of the centers, then each with their borders.

    Very Good! The proportions always throw me off too. I like your borders. I usually endup adding strips to the pile before starting and adding strips to the ends to make them longer. Borders work better.

    They all look great! Any reason they had to be 36"? Could you make them wider?

    Those are fantastic. You did a great job on enlarging them with borders.

    Wild, but wonderful........ And you could use 36" strips....makes more variety......some designs suggest cutting some 42" in half and some into thirds.....
