other scrappy idea

this is the other idea I have to use up scrappy strips
sew them together and then trim to all one width
like 1 1/2  or 3 inch or a variety 

then cut out some 14 inch blocks
slash at an angle on one side
insert a strip
do another slash
add strip and do a 3rd

I really like this quilt
I just dont have all those solid looking backgrounds
so not sure how it would look with
say all gray background

what do YOU think?
any ideas for me?


  1. I think a grey would make a great play with color and different interpretation of a birch tree stand.

  2. I agree gray would certainly work--or a green/white (leafy) background and sold strips-- that might be nice, too...hugs, Julierose

  3. That is a cool quilt. Love the colorful background. Black---night or navy blue---yellow---bright sunshine, orange fiery fall.
