My New Quilt

Hi friends!
Don't forgot the giveaway    HERE
My new quilt i started last week.
These are additive!
What's so bad is i have almost that much tumbles still stacked up on my cutting table!
But am just making a lap quilt for another Aunt so i did white around these.
I cut the edges so i had a straight line to add to.
It's hard to see in this but i added a strip of colored two by 6 inch strips along that side of the white.
I stopped there because i didn't know if that was the look i wanted. But i don't want to get real big and i was going to add another white  strip after the colored ones.
You can see it a little better here.
It doesn't show up much on that quilt i have on my bed.
Another one almost ready for quilting.
Have a good one
Hugs
Quilt Happy

Simply lovely scrappy quilt you've made here! I love it! when I did my hexagon (unfinished still!!) piece the edges were uneven too--I am going to applique it to wide strips I think we'll see...am really taking a short sewing respite right now. Stay tuned...hugs, Julierose

You must sew from sunup to sundown, you sure do get a lot accomplished! Bravo!

arent they addictive? like the way you made "stripes" of the dark and lights
I am making mine with the 2 1/2 inch tumblers (yeah I cant throw anything away hee hee) and trying to just sew scraps in no particular order. I have seen some of just one color too that I love ahhhhh another day.....

well that went together quickly!! If I move my machine to the living room I might get more done! I hate leaving Terry alone out there. Your tumbler quilt top is pretty cool. I like the light and dark rows. I also like looking at the variety of fabrics you use in your scrappy quilts.
xx, Carol

Yes, piecing is addictive! I'd rather piece than quilt, lol. This quilt is beautiful!
