    A while back there was a "NOODLE SWAP" 2.5" width of fabric strips were sent in, switched around, and sent out to all of us involved in the swap. I seperated mine into colors that seemed to go together, added a few from my stash and made this quilt. I have another in the works - much lighter look, just need to get some "white" batting since there is quite a bit of white in it. Hope you like it...I've seen this pattern refered to as Log Cabin on Steroids??
    Swaps are Great!

    Great job! It reminds me of a braided rug the way the colors wrap around from all the different fabrics.

    That's exactly what I thought. I can remember my great-grandmother braiding rugs and she always used what she could find so the colors were never matched. And they wore like iron!!

    Exactly what my reaction was when I first opened the thread and saw the picture. NIcely done!!

    I know you can do whatever dimensions you want for this, however, might I ask what size was your first long strip? # WOF strips used? Finished size?

    I like this a lot ... more interesting than the Jelly Roll Race quilts.

    Funny :!: That's exactly what Quilt Shop Jerry said! you're both right -these wonderful noodles I recieved from the swap really have a nice warm "homey" feel.

    I agree-- i wantt to get started now but people want to know... What is the length of that first strip and overall size of finished quilt? Thanks to all for sharing. I am jazzed again with sewing and that is a good thing for me.

    Glad you like it. Happy to pass along the info for this one.
    First I should tell you I didn't want to piece a back for it, so that is why it's 42" wide. This made the length 56" long.
    The starting strip was approx 17 3/4".
    I just winged it on how long that starting strip should be.
    If I were to do it again, it would probably be just a bit shorter.

    Have fun, I enjoyed working on it. I'd add strips then hang it up for a while to look at it before deciding what to add next. :-P
