    Two 1600 quilts I made

    Saturday our guilt guild had a workshop to make them. Of course they had to race and I was the 1st one to finish. Although mine is more like a 1932 quilt because I used 48 strips instead of 40.
    This is the one I sewed at the workshop. It is 2 of the same jelly rolls I got from Connecting Threads maybe 3 yrs. ago. These are all print.

    Then the next morning I got up and made this quilt, again using 48 strips but these are all solid. And I like the white square in between.

    They are both great. I really like the bias seams in the first one.

    I quilted it with varigated thread and the panto is Whoopsie Daisy, computerized version.
    It is something like 69 1/2 x 64".
    I LOVE this one and think I may call it Northern Lights.

    The quilting really makes it nice. They are both beautiful! I haven't tried one yet, but now I am anxious to try one. Great work! Thanks for sharing.

    I really love both of them, but the second one with the white squares is my favorite!!! I made one a few months ago, but now I want to make another with the white squares!! Thanks for the idea!

    Really like both of your qults, and your idea of running the strips vertically with the square.
