My world, my life, my thoughts...my way. I'm a longarm quilter who has an older fabric stash that i am trying to use up. I particularly like selvage quilting and strip and crumb blocks. Life in the country is a never ending education.

Colorful Striped Diamonds
These are strip pieced blocks...that were pieced in April, 2014. Probably every fabric i had in my stash at the time. I used a fat batting, so it is rather puffy. It is 67x77....lost 3 inches both ways with quilting. those fat batts are killers.
Each block has the same colorful strip through the middle, with the same light strip on either side of it.
There are all kinds of strips.....several of them candy. .... and dog bones
Actually, several different candy strips.
You'll find a fishing lure.....or two.
A carousel horse
Floral strips, graphics, plain fabrics, dots and everything in between.
Back is an unbleached muslin.
I used Glide Red for the top and Bottom Line Copper for the bobbin. Binding is scrappy pieces from other quilts.
