TGIFF! - Bright Stripes
|Bright Stripes - Close up|
Pull up a chair, grab a cup of something delicious, and let's see what quilty goodness has been finished this week.
Bright Stripes is done and I simply adore it! I'm so glad I put on my big girl pants to cut into my little stash of Bright Remix by Robert Kaufman for this project.
For those who are here for the first time, this is my test of my Falling for Stripes pattern (coming soon).

from the straight lines
I love effect the effect of the spirals done this way, but it took twice as long to do it as I had planned and there are a ton of threads to bury at the end. There was a lot of knee lifting, turning, and pulling the quilt through the throat of the machine for this quilt. It's hard on the shoulders and wrists. It's worth it though.
For the back, I took one strip of scrap Bright Remix and some white. Simple. I like it.
