On the Design Wall: Stripes!

I need a back for my Circa 50 quilt for the Fat Quarterly Quilt Along.  I have a lot of white, but that seemed to plain for this quilt.  I had some extra Circa 50, but I kept leaning towards a patchwork pattern and that was too similar to the front.  I had extra Kona solids too.  Hmmm...  I opened up the solids and laid them out on the table.  Aha... Yes!  Stripes!  Stripes are going to be just right.  And so as I write this... I have stripes on the wall.  They make me smile.

They vary in height some are 2.5" and some are 6".  They are so crisp and cheery.  I love them.  : )  Now I'm off to the store for batting.  Joann's sent me a 50% coupon.  Yipeee.


  1. Very creative and will go work wonderfully with that quilt! Great job!

  2. Yes totally agree the stripes are the perfect foil for this quilt top.

  3. You have always had a love affair with all manner of stripey things...

  4. Gotta love those 40% and 50% coupons for backing,batting and some Kona!!

  5. Couldn't agree more. Perfect for the quilt.
