Strip Twist Pink and Green


The pink and green version of the Strip Twist quilt is finished! I love the pink and green fabrics together. It is approximately 28" by 36". I used half of a Oh, Cherry oh! Jelly Roll from Moda for the fabrics on the front and assorted prints from the line and a miscellaneous green I had in my stash for the backing.


I attached the binding by machine using a decorative stitch. I really like how it mimics the meandering in the quilting. The binding is scrappy pieced using leftover fabric from the project. I am currently loving pieced bindings.

I had to do another pieced backing. This time I just did long strips for the back. I wanted to hang it up for a picture, but my improvised yarn clothesline snapped when I was trying to hang it up. So it was draped over the swing instead.

I love how quilts look all folded up! Have a good weekend everyone!

Beautiful pattern, fun quilt. Perfect! And of course I'm lovin' that decorative stitch to attach the binding. A little helpful hint that will definitely come in handy.

Enjoy, enjoy a wonderful weekend, too!

Peace out!
