Strips

A little while ago Tracey posted a link on her blog which is very interesting.
My eye was set on a simple but beautiful quilt on a bed.
(It was a only few seconds but enough for me)


a screenshot of the quilt 

I mentioned Tracey on the quilt. She loved it too and came to the splendid idea to make this quilt together. So we started cutting strips for each other and have sent it over the pond!



Strips for her.



and strips from her.


I sewed them random together in different widths.


 Finished top.
 The wind wasn't cooperated with me, but you get the idea :-)
As soon as it is quilted I promise to show up with a better picture.




Folded and ready to baste. I love this quilt very much.

It's beautiful, and so fun that you could make it with your friend who is far away.

It is a beautiful quilt Lucy and so nice that you and Tracey have made one each from the same fabrics.

Ook al werkte de wind niet mee, ik vind het een geweldig plaatje.
De stof keuze is ook mooi.
Succes met het quilten.

Groetjes,
Evelyne
