    Two 1600 quilts I made

    Saturday our guilt guild had a workshop to make them. Of course they had to race and I was the 1st one to finish. Although mine is more like a 1932 quilt because I used 48 strips instead of 40.
    This is the one I sewed at the workshop. It is 2 of the same jelly rolls I got from Connecting Threads maybe 3 yrs. ago. These are all print.

    Then the next morning I got up and made this quilt, again using 48 strips but these are all solid. And I like the white square in between.

    They are both great. I really like the bias seams in the first one.

    I quilted it with varigated thread and the panto is Whoopsie Daisy, computerized version.
    It is something like 69 1/2 x 64".
    I LOVE this one and think I may call it Northern Lights.

    Really like both of your qults, and your idea of running the strips vertically with the square.

    Both are beautiful, 2nd one is more so. I liked the white squares, set the colors off.

    I like them both. A lady in my quilt guild made one in purples and put two borders on hers. It is stunning!!

    Really like both of your quilts also, but the second one is my favorite, really like the white squares. And to think solid fabrics could look this good!!!! Thanks for sharing.

    Wonderful quilts. I want to make one like your second quilt with the white squares. I like them both very much, but the second one strikes my fancy and I know someone who would love to have a quilt like this. Thanks for sharing.

    That is wonderful. I love the white in between the strips. Much more sophisticated looking. I am going to have to try that. I have done a couple of 1600 quilts but they seem to beg for something more. However, yours is the perfect answer. The top one looks like mine.
