Striped Quilt Challenge

IMG_0033 Beth at Love Laugh Quilt  has been hosting a Striped Quilt Challenge; and this is the last week of the challenge which, of course, ends this weekend.

Here is Beth’s quilt … isn’t it beautiful!  When I saw this, I was inspired to make my own striped quilt.


And, when I joined a month ago, I really believed that I would not have a problem … at least starting a project and even believed that I would surely finish one before the challenge ended.  But here I am, just a few days left,  and all I’ve done is cut a few strips.  I hope this counts as a “start”!


At the time, I knew I had some striped fabric, but I happily envisioned myself going to the fabric store to add to my stash!  Well, that didn’t happen.  And, my limited stash gave me no vision and no plan, so I had to go online for inspiration:


I’m still not sure what I’m going to do.  I’m thinking maybe pinwheels or hour glass blocks, but I do so love the zig-zag design!


  1. You found some wonderful inspiration quilts!!! I'm tempted to begin another one right now!

  2. The zig zag is gorgeous. That's my vote. Enjoy whatever you choose though x

  3. Oh thank you!
    I was looking for new ideas to use my striped fabrics, I found the right one!
