new quilt

... pretty quilt confetti!

Whilst still working on my first two quilt projects, I felt the need to start another. I have always wanted to make a string or strip quilt and after reading the article in Art Quilt Studio magazine by Rayna Gillman, I couldn't wait any longer.

I already had the right colors of fabric out so I started ripping strips. I have it all planned in my head. The article by Rayna is called Cinderella quilts and she invented a block called the urban storefront. I love that and since I do things in even numbers...I will probably start that one too.

I never work on one project at a time....I never have.

It's an art thing.

I know I am not alone on that one.

I have no idea what strip quilts or Cinderella quilts are, but your strips of fabric look yummy and I can't wait to see what are you going to do with them. xo

Oh how I love those colourful quilt strips (love strippy quilts too!)...beautiful colours.
Art Quilt Studio I will have to keep a look out for that one...who publishes that magazine? The only ones I get are Art Quilts and Selvedge. I love a good quality patchwork/art quilt magazine.

Looking forward to seeing your new quilts.
