striped updates.

My striped quilt top is finished but I'm still
dragging my feet with the quilting part.
I found a backing....that's one step closer, huh?

I did run around and peek at what you other
striped quilters are doing.
I found out that we have some lovely things going on...
In fact Sarah has her quilt top finished!!
Marilyn has a REAL beauty on her design wall
and is going out to get more fabric.:)
I saw works in progress over at
Amy's and Jewel's creative spaces.

How is everyone else doing?
One more month of summer.
One more month of a striped challenge.
I might even have another striped quilt in me!!!


Before I finish a quilt though...
I always seem to need to have another one started.
Why is that????
I saw a quilt over at Debra's blog
and I love hers!!!
I think it will be a great pattern for
a brown and Turquoise quilt someone requested recently.


I now have a little stack of pieces.....
Ready to be sewn together.

  2. I've been gathering striped shirts at the thrift stores. My rule is to not pay more than $1.29 each. I've got too many blues. Do you realize how many blue striped men's shirts are out there? Hoping for some reds, lights and darks.

  3. I actually finished my striped quilt completely (even shrunk it for the crinkly effect), I just haven't blogged about it! It's a doll/baby size, but my daughter absolutley loves it. I didn't end up using shirting, but bright stripes from a jelly roll someone gave me. Once I get it blogged I'll let you know! =)

  4. Your striped quilt looks great! I almost always start another quilt before finishing one. Usually I have several in progress at a time.

    I love yours and am heading to check out everyone else's progress!

  7. I think I need to do another one when I finish this one. One completely different.
