Progress, WIP Here we go, again!

WIP Wednesday

Completed my quilt top Sunday. I used the general principle of Cluck, Cluck, Sew's Strip and Flip Baby Quilt.

I made a few changes, such as adding the solid strip between each print. In this version I cut the solid strips 2 inches and the prints are 2.5 inches. Then, as the name implies, I cut a section and flipped it with a different print strip on either side of the "flipped" section. 
I am linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced 

There are a lot of projects with links to really good blogs. Check them out. 



Will take it to "Show 'n Tell" at Tampa Modern Quilt Guild on Saturday. Hope they like it. You too. Please leave comments and follow me by email or via Bloglovin. 
Thanks ya'll!!

    1. It is a bit more challenging than I thought, keeping all of the strips from bowing. Starch is my friend!

  8. I love your version of the strip and flip quilt, Ellen. Adding the solids gives it a totally different feel, making the prints really stand out. Thanks for your lovely comments on my strip and flip quilt. If you are ever looking for somewhere to showcase your quilts, I host an ongoing quilting and patchwork link party...
