White and Stripy quilt

Some time ago at Pinestream Quilters club night I won three pieces for fabric. Pale and  pretty, one was flowery, one stripsof colour and the other spots. I took them out of the cupboard many times but they did not sing to me. Then one day tral lah lah I added more pale fabrics plus a main background white----I decided to use the technique quilt as you go. Sewing the strips direct on to the batting and backing.

But first was to play with these strips on my  design wall.DSC01174

these are not sewn yet just pinned., ready to stitch—oh dear not enough need to cut and pin more.Before I could start sewing to the backing I had to make the backing.

Lots more stitching and here we are all finished
