    ....mini - ized! Instead of using 40+ strips at 2 1/2" by 40", I used 52 strips at 3/4" by 5". I used 26 different black and white fabrics (can you believe that I had that many different ones?) and a FQ of orange that was a gift from one of my DQ partners. The second border is grey, the binding is pure black.

    This was inspired by this month's DQ swap challenge: black and white with a POP of another color.

    This finished at 10 1/2" by 13".

    Are some of the seams a little wonky? Yes!

    Great quilt!! Wow -- 3/4" strips!! I don't think I could see what I was doing making 1/4" seams.

    Did you do standard 1/4" or did you make the seams smaller?

    Another beauty by Leslie! I love the pops of orange. This is the 2nd jelly roll quilt I seen with them in as many days. Must be going round. But with yours being in miniature it is much more intriguing!

    I do bend over to the machine quite a bit! But that means I have to take off my trifocals to see what I'm doing....

    I try to do scant 1/4" seams, but as the already sewn seam allowances pile up on the back, sometimes it gets difficult, and the seams get smaller.

    I love it!! Beautiful job. Oh your pieces are getting smaller. Are you keeping this one? Like LoriEl says, it is a great Halloween quilt. G

    I'm glad you like it! I was hoping you would see it.

    Yes, I think I will keep this one. I have a plan for doing another one. I think the strips need to be a little shorter, and I don't think that I need so many strips, but I'll see.
