Quick Strip Paper Piecing

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am proud of the fact that this is only my second quilt. I am a 69 year old man who decided to start quilting at the request of my wife. She signed up for the paper piecing class and I watched it. I will try more of Peggy's quilts now. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time. Make sure you have a lot of contrast in your colors.

What you will need

  • Mostly batiks

Q&A with countryquilters

Bonnie Wilson asked:
Congratulations on your beautiful quilt! I love purple and red together!
countryquilters answered:
Thank you. I think I just got lucky on the colors. But, it was a fun quilt to make. I tried several different styles with the blocks and settled on Peggy's idea as the one I liked the best.
Starling425 asked:
Wow! I'm taking that class too, but right now just watching the lessons. That is one pretty quilt.
countryquilters answered:
Thank you. I really did have fun with this quilt. I must have watched the lessons at least three times before I tried it.
Peggy Martin asked:
Fantastic!! I really love those great batiks you picked for your Rainbow Zigzag quilt - and it's even more amazing that this is only your second quilt!! Awesome!
countryquilters answered:
Peggy I am finally getting around to quilting this top. I have a long arm machine an I want to quilt this myself. Do you have any recommendations about the quilting design? I don't see circles with all the sharp points.
