Hello Everyone,

Boy am I behind! I am sure many of you will remember me working on this wonderful quilt from this post. Well, I finished the top a while ago and am just getting around to posting it now.

I have to say that I am in love with this top!! Fun, cheerful, bright, and easy to put together.



All the striped fabrics were from my stash. I had gotten them about 5 years ago at a quilt shop that had them on clearance for about $3 per yard... Score! What a great top they made.


The story behind this quilt was that I was looking for a project to make with these striped fabrics. So, of course I went straight to my Kaffe books. It is from his Passionate Patchwork book and is called Shirt Stripe Boxes.

In the book his quilt was a totally different color palette. It was made from old shirtings so they were mainly blue and white. You can see a picture of the quilt from the book in my previous post by clicking here.


But have no fear, he has a similar pattern called Earthy Mitered Boxes in his newest book Simple Shape, Spectacular Quilts. That quilt has a border on it and the stripes may be a little more well matched than mine.


Although it may look like my stripes are pretty well mitered, look closer, they are not even close to being mitered perfect. But I just love the illusion. I didn't fuss with them at all. They were just pieced as is and the result is what I am in love with!!



Now onto to making the backing and then to get it on my long arm and quilt it!! It will be a well used quilt when I am done. The added bonus is that it will always remind me of the vibrant colors that we saw when we visited Peru.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway in my previous post. You have through May 23!

Until Next Time...
