    My current quilt work-in-progress. Based on this quilt: http://www.flickr.com/photos/redpepp...ts/5055696086/">www.flickr.com/photos/redpepperquilts/5055696086/ by Red Pepper Quilts.

    Thought this design would send me over the edge with it's spinning look, but once I tried making a square I was hooked (I must already be over the edge). I've thrown in some unconventional stripes like sheet music prints, written words prints and some dots. The squares are all made...70 of them. I'm now sewing them together into a quilt top. I really need to set this aside and do some Christmas sewing, but it keeps calling me. Once the top is done and can be moved from my design wall (an unmade bed), I really will have to set it aside for a bit. I just didn't want you to think I was sitting around doing nothing.

    Doing nothing is also great too, as it gives us a chance to just let it sink in (on what we have already done so far)! By the way I like what you have done so far....:)

    Great job. Don't usually buy stripes and now am rethinking that. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

    You have done an excellent job. I can not believe how well your stripes match.

    Wonderful idea for a quilt! I can see why you can't leave it alone! I like the 'stripes' of words, music, etc.! Very nice!!!

    Great job, love the idea. It would be perfect for all of those shirts from goodwill as they are mostly stripes.

    Very interesting to keep your eyes on the black and white striped block while scrolling the pic up. Watch what it does...an optical illusion of sorts. One reason why I love working with stripes! Nice work!
