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!
