Stripes

I finally decided on borders for my orange striped quilt. I like how it turned out.



I've had such fun making these mitered stripe blocks that I keep buying more striped fabrics. Last week I ended up with 3 new fabrics to try out. I'm guessing it's kind of like when the stack & whack quilts first came out. For a while I looked at every fabric with an eye to make a S&W. Did the same thing with the 4 patch swirl and will probably do it with these stripes for a while.

Looks great, Corky. Are you keeping it?

It's wonderful - glad to see some of my "what did I buy that for?" fabrics turning into beautiful quilts.

I'm really liking the stripes. I just bought some striped fabric and want to play a bit with it. I'm still looking around for what would be best...I will probably be most happy though with a design of my own. Thanks for showing your mitered squares. :)
