Scrappy Strips Quilt

I once sewed clothing for my kids when they were small. This blog is actually a chronology of all the things I sewed for them, thankfully, because I sure wouldn't remember all the lovely things I made with love for them.

I have been seeing lots of strip quilts, here, here, and here, and I wanted to make a similar one.

Here it is!

Most of the fabrics came from past projects, like this one:

And this ruffled skirt:
scraps from this skirt are in the quilts, this daughter is 16 now!

It's a twin size quilt, perfect for a guest room.

I even used a scrappy binding, just grabbed a bunch of old leftover strips from past projects.

Isn't that blue Hawaiian print scrumptious? My son wore that hat I made for him for years. He gets married this month, that's how long ago this was.

The quilting was sent out to a local company, it's just a bunch geometric squares. I am sure this will be loved for years to come as it took years to curate all these fabrics.

I always embroider the year on my projects
