Finish It Up Friday ~ Scrappy Strips

This top was on my shortlist to quilt because I just love it so much! I started with parallel lines.

When I had covered the entire surface, I removed the quilt from the frame, rotated it 90 degrees, and reloaded it. This is about as tricky as it sounds. Then I added lines in the other direction.

It’s worth the effort!

I decided a scrappy binding was the perfect finish.

I love this even more after washing! It has the puckery texture that I love.

And now it is hanging in my family room.

Have a great day!
