strips and squares quilt

quilt i made for baby girl... i used special fabric that my sisters got me...

i cut the fabric into strips 14'' long and 4'' wide and squares 4'' by 4''. i laid them out randomly with 3 strips and 2 squares in each column. then i pieced them with 1/2'' seam allowances. i used organic cotton batting and a beautiful print for the backing that has african women dancing in the rain (i love it). for the actual quilting i just did a very plain stitch in the ditch technique. i am very happy with the way it turned out! this one will be a keeper!
