So, I thought I'd share my strip quilt with you today. As soon as I saw these Anthology fabrics (High Society - Safari), I knew I had to have them. I dithered by a few days and missed out on one of the prints. Not to worry. Once they arrived, they certainly did not disappoint. I wanted to show off the designs in them, so decided a strip quilt would be the way to go. It's my first and I am chuffed, although feel I may have gone slightly too long. I think it should be okay, though. So, here is the quilt top:
I am not entirely sure how I will quilt and what I will do to the back yet. I bought half yards so there is still plenty left - I think it will be a solid with some strips of this fabric pieced in - we'll see.................
In the meantime, I have a stack of Carolyn Gavin Wild Thyme from Fabricworm which is calling me and ideas are whizzing around my head

I've matched in a couple of solids and think I may just make Ashley's Unfurnished quilt
Of course, by tomorrow, I could totally have changed my mind! Here's hoping for a better shoulder so that I can at least start cutting
