I am a quilter - a retired widow living in the Nebraska Panhandle. I am surrounded by beautiful semi-arid ranch country, and treeless hills and fields under incredibly wide blue skies, located far from the upheaval found often in large towns or cities. I am blessed to have delicious time to quilt and to appreciate my peaceful moments in an unpeaceful world.
QAYG technique, not bound yet. About 48" x 64". The strips are various sizes, deliberately unplanned in order.
Back pieces are scrappy as well. I filled in with 5 blue squares.
Close up of fabrics.
I used sashing strips of 1 7/8 in, folded, for the front, and 7/8 in. for the back. My white back stitches all fall on the outside of the white strips, but blend in with the busy back fabrics. These measurements fit well with my quarter inch foot. Most of leftover batting was used up as well as a lot of pink scraps. However, there is still an enormous box of pinks left for the next project. This was started about 10 days ago.
