I'm still in my scrap mode. After making two small quilts with large squares (6"-7") surrounded by large strips (1"-3"), I have been playing with small strips. Rayna Gillman's book Create Your OwnFree Form Quilts calls working with strips "therapy sewing." She joins strips randomly and then slices and inserts and rejoins to come up with unexpected results. Here is the result of some of my therapy sewing. These strip sets don't have a plan yet; they are just addictive to stitch!
I liked three of the pieces enough to layer and quilt and finish them. The yellow/green piece has a traditional binding; the blue one and the sunflower (long) piece are finished with rat-tail cording.
The long skinny piece is backed with sunflower fabric; this gave an opportunity to quilt from the back to make the sunflower design show up on the strips on the front. Click to enlarge to show the stitches.
