Simple stripes quilt

IMG_0570

All the ladies in my family have a thing for stripes. Chances are one of us, if not all, will be wearing stripes on any given day. So when my daughter wanted a new quilt for her bedroom, I was pretty sure her design would include stripes. We had a great time designing this quilt–Betty chose the colors, selected the fabrics, and sketched her plan. The quilt is made of strips that I made longer than needed so we could play around with the lengths and order of the colored stripes. A process declared to be surprisingly fun!

I really like how the simplicity of the design showcases the prints, and the balance of bold and subtle patterns makes the quilt lively without being too busy. Nice work, Betty!

Betty may not have an interest in sewing (yet!) but she so far she is my favorite client.

Here is a peek at the Icy Peach backing and the Melon binding. I especially love that Melon, and am very glad I got some extra.
