A Quilt for My Sister

I am planning to make a quilt for my older sister this summer. I want to make something using these 2 1/2 inch strips. They are all from various Denyse Schmidt collections.

I have 64 strips cut from 64 different prints.  I’ve been playing around on  EQ7 trying to come up with a plan.  

Obviously, my version of either will be scrappy. I need to commit and start sewing!

Linking up with Free Motion By The River and Quilt Story.

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    These designs look great. I was thinking of doing something similar but to feature a bird embroidery where the white it… looking at these makes me realize I need to really plan out the quilt before I jump in and drown! I like both of these designs….

  6. I do like Irish chain type quilt blocks. All those background spaces would give an ideal opportunity for you to feature some of your lovely quilting stitches. 🙂

    Whichever version you choose will look great in those fabrics.
