    Strip quilt finished

    I took all my 2 1/2 strips, no matter what size in length. I put a blk 4 inch boarder and quilted the boarder just curved back and forth and the strips SID. I have to put a label on it and the back is a small red and black print. I don't know what to call this one. Strip Happy! Thanks for looking at my scraps.Name:  IMG_3064.jpg

    Pretty cool looking! Good job using up scraps.!

    Really like the look of the many varied lengths of your strips. Makes a much more interesting quilt.

    great usof scraps and you got a nice quilt to boot.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Why don't you have fun and just call it "The Stripper"? Love the quilt! I have strips cut from scraps but none sewed together yet...one of these days I will get it done!

    Very nice. I've made a few like that from donated jelly rolls for charity quilts.
    I keep thinking of doing that with all my left over strips but it hasn't happened yet.....

    I still have 3 shoe boxes full of 2 1/2" strips. Was debating to do a scrappy Irish chain or like you did. last year I took some of the scraps and sewed them together and cut 12" blocks and made a lap robe for charity..Like the jelly roll race project like you did
