Strip Quilt

After our first attempt a couple of years ago and some success with a few members actually "finishing" their quilts, our quilting group has decided to do another Friendship Quilt.
This time we are doing strips, and the handover is tonight.  As usual, I work best under pressure, so finished mine at 11 last night!!

Well, I just finished mine and popped it in the box about 15 minutes ago Annie!! So, you haven't done too badly! Your Strip looks amazing - after looking at that book at your place last time, I had to have it and it is now on its way to me. See you tonight.

Ooh, lovely. Is this just part of the quilt then, or is it called a strip quilt because it's made from strips? Quilting is quite mysterious to a beader!

Well done Annie! I finished mine about 7 last night. Nothing like a last minute rush. Yours looks great!

Love the colours Annie and the design is pretty darn good too.

So are you exchanging strips to partners? Is there a color/pattern theme? Love your strip. I've seen that book on another blog somewhere and it looks very interesting.

Love your strip! Look forward to see the rest!
Last minute...I know how that is!
I'm a last minute-worker, and I work best under pressure! But often I've had an idea working in my head for a long long time, before I come to the last minute!

I like the fabric you have used. It will be interesting to see the whole quilt.
