    Bucket of Strips Quilt

    Sooooo .... I had this big old bucket of strips and finally decided to pair them as HSTs with black.

    I had no idea what to do with the blocks after than until ... thepolyparrot to the rescue with a slew of great ideas.

    I just finished the top this afternoon and couldn't wait to take a photo of it even before I ironed it.

    Here are the blocks ... and the top. I can't wait to quilt it!

    Nice work with your strips. I like that you kept the colors fairly uniform within the individual HST. And that was quick work, too. Just read your original post this morning.
