    Have fun. It goes together pretty easily. I did not measure my strips (don't have the patience). They are all different widths!

    Very pretty! It looks like it was fun to make.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Beautiful quilt! I spent time this weekend sorting strips of leftover fabric from prior quilts. I'm ironing the strips and putting them in plastic bags to make a strip quilt this summer (so much fun looking at the colors in the plastic bags and makes me feel ORGANIZED!!) Your quilt has been an inspiration!
