All Day Sew
Below is my finished top, a Split 9-Patch. I'm loving the final result! Back to the quilt shop for more batting! This "system" is a Strip and Slash" by Jackie Robinson. Now, a name for this project of over 3250 pieces! The value are very rich in person. A blogger (Fat Quarters) taught me how to keep warmth in the light neutrals by adding some pastel pinks, yellows, blues.
Yesterday was our local All Day Sew and we were working on this design. Jody made the red one we used for our example - what a great scrap user. I think this was a free pattern from Blank Quilting called "Hot Flash". (By the time we were half way done, all of us (10) decided we HAD to make this one for our own use as well! It's all 2 1/2 strips.
