Blogger's Quilt Festival--Scrap Quilt

It's that time of year again, and Amy is hosting the 
 This time I'm featuring my latest finish. This quilt was made with the leftover scraps from my Flower Box Quilt.  
I love scrap quilts, and I love stripe quilts--this one is both!
 I love how the quilting turned out! I used my favorite slightly variegated green thread. 
The backing is a sage green super soft minkie. 
 This quilt measures approximately 37" x 52".
It is for sale, and is listed in my shop.

Beautiful quilt! The colors are fantastic and I love the minky on the back. The curves of your quilting complement the pattern of material on the front panels.

Beautiful, that fabric line is georgeous and love that quilting design, looks great with the minky. I love strip quilts too, I make mine sometimes with some really big pieces of fabric, but this looks great with the smaller ones, I'm going to try that next.

Gorgeous quilt! I love your colours. That is a really good point about 'no reply' comments, it upsets me too if I can't reply to comments. Thanks for bringing it up!
