This is my last finished quilt of 2011. It is Eli's Christmas Strip Quilt.
It was finished in time for him to have it before Christmas. (Just barely)
It was fun and fast to make and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
I quilted it with green/red/white variegated thread. I alternated between straight and wavy lines across each strip right near the seam. The wavy line is a stitch on my machine, so it is not me manually keeping it evenly spaced. I just have to be careful with the speed. I don't have a walking foot and just use my regular machine foot.
The back is pieced with several large pieces of fabric. The binding is a candy cane stripe.
