Did you hear me? One strip!! There are still 5 more to sew together. Then when you add the sashing and outer border... OH MY GOODNESS!!! This quilt is going to be a monster!!!! I don't know what I was thinking about, but I'm almost sure it's too late to turn back now. Wish me luck.

This is the front of the quilt. I love the scrappiness of it. I can look at each pinwheel block and tell you what the fabric from the block was originally used on. Cool!!
This pic shows the backing. I was able to use the same fabric for the binding on this one.
With both of these quilts I did some stitch in the ditch quilting. I totally suck at that. I've been practicing my stippling but still do not feel comfortable enough to try it on a big quilt yet. On my table now I have some fabric cut to make a chinese coins quilt for Alani, and I have a quilt for myself in the works using Civil War Crossings fabric by Moda. Then I'll start on Justin's quilt. Can't leave him out. So, there you have it. The reasons I've been MIA from blogland. But I'm back now, and will be blogging a bit more. At least this week while the kids are out.
