I started this beauty nearly 5 months ago. I'd hate to admit it but I purchased the fabric 10 months ago! I saw lots of strip quilts floating around and thought "oh that's so quick and easy!" Easy? Yes. Quick? No.
There's something about piecing cool designs together that makes quilting fun. Running straight strip around another straight strip continually isn't as much fun. It's not a really time consuming task but its boring.
I kept sewing 2 sets of layers on and then I'd stop...for weeks! Finally I pushed through and finished it.
I'm going to go back to what I like. :)
