    Strips that Sizzle

    I just finished this quilt and hated the process it took to make this quilt. However, I really like the final result. I never had to rip and resew so many times to get this done. Hope you enjoy it! Thanks for looking.

    Oh my goodness, what a lot of work you had to do. I absolutely love your quilt. I love the color selection. I would never have thought to put those colors together and they look so wonderful with each other.

    No this was all done with strip sets cut into blocks and then cut in triangles.

    Wow, that is beautiful and it matches my sewing room - if you ever get tired of it, I'll take it off your hands!

    I did one too and name it Sizzle and Burn! It still looked great though. The fabric was so busy that it didnt matter there were some goofs. I took this class from Margaret Miller at our guild retreat. She is a fabulous teache.

    Really nice! I probably would have ripped out more than you (shall we have a contest sometime?) but that pattern and color combo look great!

    very pretty! I agree, it was worth all the work, this has so much movement, and the colors are great - makes me think of spring trees in bloom.
