solid strings

This quilt, made with long strips of lovely Kona solids, was inspired by a mixture of the Gee's Bend quilters, and a page from Dr. Seuess's "Oh, the Places You'll Go". Pull out your copy, and have a flip through to see if you can find which page. Hint: it's stripey!



Penny loves it. High-contrast and all that. It makes me think of summers at the English seaside, and walks along the promenade lined with beach-huts.

So far, just the top is done, but I'm imagining row upon row of close, straight lines quilted along the stripes.

I love it - and your blog name! If you look at Gee's bend quilt some of them have quilting in these interesting arcs which might be fun on this too - I think it will be a stunner no matter how you finish it!
