A Little Red n Blue
Another little one that's been finished for awhile, just hadn't shown it to you yet. I really like this simple design, just strips sewn together.
My memory is a bit dim, but here's how (I think) I did this one. I cut varying width strips by the width of fabric. The strip widths were anywhere from 1.5"-3" wide.
I then took these strips, layering a few on top of each other, and cut them into the following lenghts, 3.5", 6.5", and 12.5". This makes it really easy to mix and match your widths, as two 3.5" sets sewn together make 6.5", and two 6.5" sets sewn together make 12.5". Make any sense?
For the quilting I did my old standby, straightline quilting about 1" apart. I've found this to be my magical formula that makes for just the right amount of crinkly texture, but not too much quilting to make it stiff.
