Stripy, Chunky, Patchwork

I really like how this little quilt turned out.  It was quick, fun and I will certainly do another one like it when I need a quick quilt.  I will be sending this quilt to the Hands to Help quilt challenge along with my yet-to-be-even-cut-out partner challenge quilt.

The top and the back are both pieced in strips and blocks.  I love how it gives it an extra dimension.
I used up all the scraps from the top and binding and tucked them in between a few fat quarters from my stash to make the back.
The whole quilt is done in a zig-zagy wave from side to side with the exception of the large strip in the middle. "Cartoon" quilting is how I think of this--I just buzz around the flowers/leaves and vaguely outline them, working my way across the strip. 

It quickly adds some interest to a large print.
Striped binding is always a favorite.

I think this is just wonderful! I love the wave quilting - have used it myself. It just gives the quilt a nice crinkly, cuddly look to it. Fantastic.

Cute, cute quilt! Whoop Whoop!! and congrats on getting it done. Good idea on just wiggly-wobbly lines, easy but effective.

Nice job! I love that cartoon quilting thing - it really pops out those flowers.

oh, this is nice. Love the quilting you did the cartoon strip really adds to the quilt, and the wavey lines are great too, do you use your sewing machine or a long arm for this? Nice Finish!

I love this quilt!! It looks as wonderful from the back as it does from the front. The cartoon quilting is super.

Oh, Ann, it's beautiful! I've been dying to try that "cartoon quilting" with a big back print, but haven't had the chance. Whoop whoop!!
