Kelp Quilt Strip

I was a very good quilting bee-er this month and finished my strip for Rossie's kelp quilt completely on schedule. I was very intrigued by the design she had in mind, and even more impressed that she dyed the fabrics herself. I hope I am half as creative when its my turn to send out packages.
There is pressure involved when you have a certain amount of fabric to use, and a time frame to use it in. Which is precisely why this quilting bee is a good exercise for me.

I think my horizontal bars are a bit wider than Robin's (which I'm so glad you posted a photo of so early in the month). Rossie I hope that is okay!

I can't wait to see how the subtle red shades variations play out together in the completed top.


  1. it looks great! can't wait for it to arrive.
    variation is good, keeps things interesting!

  2. nice! I like the off-centeredness of this
