Strip quilt for a little boy ...

He's almost here ... 2 weeks to go!  My friend "J" is SO close to delivering a little boy and the excitement in their house is contagious!!

Quilt front
So a little strip quilt was in order!

I made my first strip quilt with some of these fabrics for little "D" two years ago ... and his mom reports it is now his go-to blanket and dragged everywhere he goes ... nothing excites a quilter more than that now does it ?!?!?
Quilt back
I put a little salmon color into this one with the Lizzy House Red letter days ... and I adore the color composition!  In fact, took the quilt down to my LQS this afternoon, to pick up some new prints that are similar to what I used in this quilt.
I also mitered the corners for the first time!  They aren't perfect, but I finally tackled something that I have a bit nervous about trying!  
Quilt by the numbers:
37" x 48"
Front:  9 prints and a little Kona Ash Gray solid, in 18 strips
Back:  Chocolate Kona with some pieced prints
Binding:  Kona Ash Gray
Quilting:  Tight meandering with a light gray 100% cotton thread

Now I've got to make a little doll quilt for their 4-year old daughter before I deliver this next week.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

All the best
Lisa
