9 Design Stripe Quilt

Before my sewing machine got injured and had to be taken in for repair, I was able to finish my most recent quilt design. I call it the 9 Design Stripe Quilt because, well, the pieced strips are made up of 9 different prints. I've had this coordinating fabric for a while and wanted to put it to good use. The prints are made up of a variety a dots, swirls, starbursts, stripes, medallions and flowers in turquoise, green, brown and cream. I would consider it to be a girls quilt, but it is not overly feminine.

















The vertically pieced stripes are paired with a cream solid kona cotton. For the binding, I used a matching turquoise solid.










For the backing, I used a coordinating polka dot print. I had an extra strip of the pieced fabric from the front, so I incorporated that horizontally on the back.































I quilted it vertically only stitching 1" apart.













This quilt has been machine-washed (gentle) and tumble-dried, giving it an antique wrinkled look.












Love those colored dots!
