This strip challenge quilt was made from a package of green strips with the addition of white fabric to set off the Green 25 patch blocks.
The blocks are 10 inches square and the sashing is 3 inches wide. The outside border is 5 inches wide, so the quilt finished at 44″ x 70″.
One of the advantages of participating in a strip challenge where the fabric is provided is the chance to experiment with designs and fabrics you would not normally select. I’m not a huge fan of the color green, so this is not something I would typically have chosen to sew. Knowing that it is for a Community Outreach donation quilt liberates me to play with colors and patterns that generally would not attract me. Despite this being a bit different for me, I really liked the finished quilt.
Quilting with the Circle Lord Swirlz template added some roundness and movement to a very angular design. The finished quilt goes into the Community Outreach inventory for future donation.
