Our pattern called for one jelly roll plus 2 strips. I cut 2 strips from my batik stash and started piecing. This was a fun pattern. I have 8" left of each strip.
The pattern doesn't call for a border, but I may add one if I can think of someway to use those the remaining strip pieces to compliment what I have.

I used Superior Threads, So Fine #50 weight with a # 80 top-stitch needle and The Bottom Line #60 weight thread in the bobbin.
I brought the binding to the front so it would appear the quilt had three borders. I love this quilt!
here. I pieced 3 extra blocks be go on the back of the quilt.
I'll sandwich the quilt top and back with Warm and White next week. May quilt it with unevenly spaced diagonal lines with purple cotton threads and make a scrappy purple binding from stash and scraps.
Tomorrow we post rainbow scrap challenge projects made with brown fabrics.

quilt. Thank you, Mary. This is a great pattern for a small quilt. I think I made the strips a little longer. And I sewed on a border. It was quilted with wavy lines using a walking foot on the sewing machine. After a go in the washing machine and the clothes dryer, it finished at 50" x 66", a nice throw for a child.
