5 patch top

32 strip blocks, 31 five-patch blocks, finish at 7 1/2 inches. All made from 2 inch cut strips and squares.
All the dark squares are from plaid shirts. The lights are mainly old neutrals, with a few shirts too.
Borders cut 6 1/2 inches.
It made a nice dent in the neutrals bag. I am using up a lot of old VIP, Cranston, and Peter Pan tiny prints on the back of this one and for the courthouse steps quilt.

Another fun top. Just cut into some Concord fabric the other day - it doesn't go bad, does it?! I love some of those old prints.

I love the quilt colors, the colors are cooling and would fit anywhere. Great quilt something I would definitely want.

Great quilt tops! I love the idea of these two blocks together and the courthouse steps one is lovely.

I love that the alternate blocks are stripped pieced. It adds so much more interest to the pattern.

Beautiful AGAIN! Such a peaceful quilt. Now I remember the pattern and like it even better with so many repeats. YOu are really truning them out this summer!

I love the simplicity of this one. I have the same doggies in RRCB - maybe from the late 90s?!

It is really, really nice! Just the kind of quilt I love to snuggle under on the couch. I do like how you used the long strips as alternate "blocks". Cheers! Evelyn
