Renee's Strip Quilt

This quilt came from Renee in Washington. This is a really fun strip quilt. Have you seen the videos/tutorials about these? I watched this one, called the 40-minute quilt, several years ago and had a great time using up some old flower sacks. It would also be a great method for jelly rolls (pre-cut bundles of 2.5" strips of fabric).

Renee asked for an edge-to-edge quilting design, so I applied my "peony" pattern, which gave this piece some great texture and moved fluidly throughout all those straight seams.

My quilting is all free-motion, hand-guided on a longarm quilting machine.
