Today is day 1 of the Show your Stripes blog hop. Thanks to Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks for organising the hop. We were asked to create something that had stripes in it. The stripes could be fabric stripes or striped fabric.
I'm on a mission to use up my scraps this year and so my plans for this project involved using as many scraps as possible. I've also recently finished a pink scrappy quilt so now I needed to use up my blue scraps. It also had to involve stripes and so I started by going through all my blue string scraps and stitching them to form blocks.
I wanted the finished quilt to be 36 inches square and so I added a border. The border and around the stars are quilted with a meander, otherwise it is all straight stitching along the seams.
The quilt isn't quite finished as I have to finish stitching the binding to the back of the quilt. I love the way the quilt looks and particularly the pop of red against the blues.
Now you need to visit the other blogs taking part today. Here is the schedule for the week.
