Quilts from 2.5" strips


Marjie asked me to quilt 5 quilts for her which she all made from 2.5" strips. These quilts are adorable!

The first 3 quilts are all Chinese Coin quilts with white sashings and borders.


Quilted with the panto Hearts a Flutter. The butterfly and heart backing goes perfectly with all the spring 2.5" strips.


The next teal Chinese Coin quilt is quilted with the panto Pretty Posies.


Teal flower backing.


The last Chinese Coin quilt was made from spring strips and a a few Breast Cancer fabrics. She made the quilt for a friend who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.


Cancer Ribbon panto.


A Bright Rail Fence quilt...this is also a good idea to use your 2.5" strips.


Quilted with the Sunny Daze panto.


The pink border frames the quilt nicely.


Pink and brown backing.


Another quilt from 2.5" strips.



I also got the quilting done on Jenny's t-shirt quilt. I am so pleased at how the quilt turned out.

Zlaty was so kind to think of me and gave me the Beautiful Blogger Award. Thank you so much! If you do have time, please visit her at Zlaty Sews.


I absolutely enjoy making quilts. I love my stash and String Quilts are my favorite!

If you like to pass this award on, please feel free to do so!


Happy Quilting!

I thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the beautiful quilting in your post. I've used that Bubbles panto a couple times and really like it. You must have a tremendous collection of pantographs.

Oh this is a delicious display of quilts and I very much enjoyed the way the quilts were combined with the backing fabric in such a thoughtful way!!! I'm usually so "slap happy" that I never consider it. It makes for such a lovely finish when you put that thought, that finishing tough to it.
