Doodles, samples, what ever you want to call it for a friend.  She gave me color requests, I bought some fabric and just sewed a few strips together to see how they look together.  I think I like them together, hope she does.

Thank you.  I'm probably going to make a simple strip quilt at least to start.  Never know what pattern you'll end up, as it depends on the number of fabrics used.

Here's the last one I made, I think it had 5 or 6 fabrics in it, but I'm not certain.

here's one that I made with a Jelly roll (pre-cut strips), and I think it had like 30 different fabrics in it (same print, different colors).

OOO, nice!  Those are colors that I like (the jewel tones) and that quilt will be beautiful!

The other strip quilts...  not really anything there does anything for me.  What are the length wise ones like to sew?  I've never  made anything from precut fabric, so I'm really curious.  The hardest part of quilt making for me is the cutting.

For the quicky strip quilt, you sew 40 strips end to end, cut 18" off one end, then start folding it back on itself.   Look up strip race quilt for better instructions and even a video demo

Working on a concept for a friend.  I made up a sample of the blender fabrics in her colors, and her butterfly fabric finally came in, so I laid the little sample block over the butterfly print, and I think it'll work together.   I think I'm going to make a slightly smaller strip quilt (like the one Diane claimed) and add a butterfly border and I think she'll have what she wants.
The strips are purple, fuschia (pink), aqua, teal, and 3 shades of blue.  I think it's going to work, at least it looks pretty good in the picture.

Thank you.  I'm kind of excited to start this one in the fall.
Along with three others that I have in the works; gathering fabric for two, have a pattern for one and waiting on theme info for third.

I wasn't sure when I ordered them, but I think they just might work in the right quilt pattern, also have a zebra stripes print on order, but that might be too much, but should be enough there for a backing, if it is too much for the top.

No picture at this time, but also have another horse quilt sort of planned, in as much as I have the fabric.   The fabric is Laurel Burch print plus some coordinates, just have to figure out a pattern that'll work with the jewel tone horse print and coordinating fabric.

I need to add borders to make the quilt big enough for the requirements for the project, but the charity Patriotic quilt is getting close, I've finished the center of the top.   I rather like it.

Did you see the zebra fabric with the two black/grey/red prints?
