Strips 'n Curves, final step

I finished the top, 80x88. It's ready for a 10" border and quilting. My goal is to have it completed by Christmas as a present for my niece and husband from my sister. I've made this pattern once before but I needed a refresher. I will be teaching this quilt at the Fabric Patch, Montclair, CA in September. There are some tricks and trouble shooting that my students will welcome.


This photo doesn't show the true colors, the "browns" are really green.

This one is great! You are such an inspiration. You'll finish the quilt in time, the question is, how many more will you do by Christmas?
I'm glad you will be teaching, wish I could join in ~ Hugs, pokey
