My little scrappy Strippy X is all together now and ready to be quilted and I'm more convinced than ever that making it a baby quilt rather than two table runners was the better choice.
It's made with my Sea Glass remnants so there is a definite 'family resemblance' to them but still a difference - there's more cream in this one. And you don't see it in these photos, but I've also added a cream border.
The border is deeper at the top and bottom, about 4", and about 2" on each side (you know, so that I could ever so slightly avoid that square quilt thing...). The creams throughout the blocks are a scrappy collection of mostly three tone-on-tone prints so I used one of these for the border.
Now to give some thought to how to quilt it. This one will be done on the machine so it will be fairly straightforward quilting - I still have not cracked the FMQ nut. I'm thinking of something that will follow the diagonal lines of the blocks. I'm also thinking that it will be nice to move on to a less muted colour palette...M
