the last of the strip quilts

I have one final strip quilt to show you (finished before Max was born, but never blogged) — hopefully you’re not too tired of seeing strip quilts! This is the last of the Flea Market Fancy strip series – the first was in green, the second using the blue prints, and this last one using the reds and pinks. I really like the way the red and pink prints go together, especially when paired with a bit of gray and some browns.

There’s also a few complementary basic prints – some Kei dots and a few stripes, as well as a number of coordinating solids in red, pink and brown.

I used a few extra strips for the backing, using a large piece of solid pink and the FMF pink posies along with a couple narrow strips of solids. It’s quilted with straight lines again – this time using a variation on this quilting pattern. The binding is a great solid red.

It measures about 39″ x 55″ and is now listed in the shop!

    I love it! I adore the color combo of browns with reds and pinks, like neopolitan ice cream.

    I love all your strip quilts so much! I really want to make one, but I need to buy something other than fat quarters first! I have 1/2 yards of the DS Quilts Fabric, so maybe that will be what I use.

    Hi there Ashley-
    I just ordered some Anna Maria Horner Little Folks voile- 1/2 yards of about 10 different colors. I have never worked with this fabric and am excited to get it. I’m trying to decide between making a strip quilt or patchwork square quilt (or maybe both eventually). I read another blog about the voile not holding up well in the wash and one of the seams ripping. How have your voile quilts held up in the wash? I’m also thinking about blacking with the Anne Maria Horner flannel. Have you backed with that before?

    best,
    Lillian
