Strip and Flip :: A Finish

I finished the Strip & Flip quilt I shared with you recently. The pattern details are all in the link.

It was fun to quilt.

I thought about quilting it horizontally following the piecing lines but decided to change things up and quilted it vertically instead. Simple lines of loops made for speedy quilting.

For the back I used the woven-look print from the fabric line.

The quilt measures about 46" by 54" so it is wider than width of fabric. The brown text print from the fabric line matched nicely with the woven-look print so I was able to extend the fabric with a strip along the side to make it wide enough.

For binding I used leftover strips from the jelly roll. So one jelly roll and 1/4 yard of contrast fabric for the vertical strips on the front are all that is required for the top and binding of this quilt. This one will be a shop sample but I plan to make another using Judy's fabric for my guild's oncology project.

Nice quilt. Great way to use those scraps. How nice of you to give such a lovely quilt to his project.

I must have slept through the other post showing the top. I like this and it seems obvious - at least to me - that you could also cut the pieced strip set into as many sections as you want - in various sizes. I see lots of possibilities.
