Not a 1600 but closer to a 2000 quilt.


Not exactly impressed with the way it's turned out. It was a roll from Spotlight, it had 50 strips in it. I used 48. I took out the 'yellow' strips they had in the roll and substituted some 'blue' strips fro another of thier rolls. The 'colour change' halfway up was totally unexpected and un-planned.
I like the colours, I like the colours together, just not too fussed about the whole effect.
Will probablu remain a top for a while.

I CAN FEEL A 1600 QUILT COMING ON.


This is the first 1600 quilt video I saw^



This one I've just found. Some of the ladies are doing a variation by putting in a square of a different colour in between the joins of each strip.

I have another variation brewing in  my head, but I an going to make the first 1600 like the top video and then if I don't totally hate the whole procedure, I'll try out my variation.
BTW, mine will be a 2000 Quilt as there are 50 strips in my roll.
