Step Right Up!

I've been making my strip club quilt this week. Each day I would make a block or two and today I have the top nearly completed. All it lacks are its borders. It was a very fast quilt to put together, but I would not say it was easy. Matching up corners of the blocks made for some tense moments I tell you. I felt a bit as though I was making tiny stair steps, leading to a small garden maze created by the blocks. And you don't want to make a wrong turn in a maze!



I'm rather liking how it is turning out. The red is not an exact match, but it gives the whole quilt a rather vintage feel to it. As I am a fan of vintage things, that is a-ok by me.



It's a good feeling to have this one tucked under my belt so early in the month. I am usually up until the wee hours of the night trying to complete my top which renders me useless the next morning when we meet to show our quilts. This time I will be fresh as a daisy!
Now, can't you just see this quilt done in these reproduction feed sack prints?




I think I may see another one in my future. ;)

Ooh! Your quilt is lovely! The one I saw in the shop was yellow with brown. Did you get to pick which color you used or do you just get a random kit?

Thanks!
Jan

Wow - that is beautiful! I can not wait to see it next month. And I love the selection of reproduction feed sack prints too. I can see a Sunbonnet Sue quilt in my future.
