    Strip quilt finished

    I finally was able to finish this strip quilt. It was a monster to quilt on my domestic machine, but I did it in sections. My husband claimed it for our bed and it is already there keeping him warm. Now I can concentrate on Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt.

    Ooh, I love your quilt. I really like the way you quilted it. I love strip quilts and I also quilt on my domestic, so your quilt is a win-win from my point of view. I have my fabrics ready for Bonnie's Mystery quilt, but I have to finish a quilt for my son first.

    I really like this! I sew with a church group and we try to have at least two large strip quilts for sale/donation ( using our scraps from other projects of course!) Can I steal your idea?

    Your husband has a good eye for a great quilt!

    I love the pattern, the way you put the pieces together, and the quilting of it.

    What I especially like about the quilting - there is "enough" of it, it is evenly distributed, and it echoes the piecing.

    Your husband was right to claim that quilt. Just beautiful and excellent quilting! Enjoy!

    Great quilt. I think this is just a perfect combination of scraps, pattern and white background. One of the most striking I have seen. Sure to be enjoyed.

    Most certainly you can steal the idea. It went together fairly quickly. Thank you for the compliment.

    Carol this is a beauty and I really like the quilting - not too heavy, just enough. As a newbie, I understand the concept of working in pieces but can you please tell me how you put the pieces together. Thanks, Kelsie
