Another top finished

The new top

Adam's Quilt


I finished another top tonight. This one is also a UFO but the only thing I had done prior to working on it this week was cutting the strips.

Cutting out scrap quilts can be such a chore that I like to cut more than one at a time when possible. I cut the strips for this charity quilt when I was cutting Becky's quilt in November.

I have the book Super Simple Strips by Lynda Milligan & Nancy Smith and had made Adam a quilt based on one from this book in Nov 2004 - I think the only change I made was the size. This was the same pattern I chose for this charity top. It's quick and easy.

Amazing how the exact same fabrics can look so different when using a different pattern. I agree with you - cutting a scrap quilt is a chore. The 2nd quilt I really love the colors on.

Cheers!

Oh, I like this pattern. Especially with the black! I will have to find it. (Or try to decipher it from your photo. LOL!)

I love both of those quilts. I'll have to check out that book. Thanks!

They look wonderful! FYI, Nancy and Lynda are the owners of the closest LQS to my house... I've been going there for years now!

Who would have thought the simplest of patterns would result in two very different but vibrant quilts - I love them both!
