Choose Your Favorite Color Combo and Background!

Skinny strips, not to be confused with 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips, combine in beautiful ways in this striking quilt. Colorful solids against a gray background are simply stunning.

Other strip and background color combinations are just as nice. Black will make the colors sing, but consider a beautiful blue, red or other color you enjoy.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
