Stripes Quilt Finish

 Yay!  Another UFO finish.  I've had these blocks laying around since WP's quilt was made.  So about four years.  You can see the post where I put this top together here.  It gives an idea of my process (somewhat scrambled at times)
 Lots of crooked organic straight line quilting.  Most with the walking foot, some without.
I still had some of the strip and orange laying around so I managed to piece the binding out of the leftovers.  The back is a stripe of which I have completely forgotten the line.  Oh, well.

Finished size: 38" x 38"
Quilted in blue coats & clark cotton thread
Batting is warm 'n natural
Will probably be a charity quilt, unless I change my mind between now and the guild meeting.

I've decided to enter this quilt at Le Challenge Geometric Theme

I really like this quilt, but I know that my best quilting friend would LOVE it!
You brought everything in that she loves in a quilt with fabric choises and color!
She doesn´t use the computer the way I do so I have to show her your quilt!
Thanks for sharing!!!

I am very envious of the quilting - I never do anything adventurous. Looks stunning.

I love how the stripes give the squares movement. They look like they're spinning!
