Powerline #5

I'm been on a roll again.  I still had a few strips left over from my Nancy Crow class in October.  I liked the colors a lot and thought they would look good against a gray background.  I pulled out several of my gray fabrics to give them a test run (and forgot to take a picture to show you!).  But in the end, I picked a slightly tan shade of the gray.

This is one of the quilts that I quickly drew up a couple of weeks ago while watching TV.  I wanted to make a square quilt this time and give the strips an edging of color.

I fell in love with the dark maroon/purple fabric and thought it gave the strips sets a nice pop against the background.

I decided that I really wanted the thread to match the top of this quilt and of course,  I didn't have the right colors.  So, I ordered more thread.  I think I now have thread lust to go along with my fabric lust.

So here it is all quilted and faced.
