Blue and rosy red.....

This quilt TOP is made with blocks called "Strips that Sizzle" explained in a book by the same name written by Margaret Miller.  First fabric is cut in strips, then sewn in stratas, then cut into blocks. The blocks are then taken to the design wall and played with until the layout is pleasing. This is a quilt TOP ready to quilt and it is 57.5" square.
Here is a closeup of the border fabrics.  The blues lean toward periwinkle and the reds are rosy.    Sold!
