... And Ending
Back in the middle of May I wrote about how Bonnie Hunter's Scrap Users Strip System doesn't work for me (read it here). Don't misunderstand; I'm not saying that there is anything inherently wrong with her system. It just doesn't work for me because I generally don't make scrappy quilts.
So at the time of that writing I whipped a mixed bunch of 2-1/2" strips into light/dark foursies to make Bonnie's free pattern Strip Twist.
While I had the 2-1/2" strip bin out I also stitched a pile of dark/neutral strip sets which I cut into 2-1/2" chunks.
And, using Bonnie's Leader/Ender system, I worked those into 4-patches in between other sewing and then added a solid 4-1/2" square to most of them in the same manner. I don't know about you, but at some point my L/E project demands to be finished, so last week I got most of it together.

Five more long seams and it will be a flimsy. I generally kept the colors in a more masculine palette but I did let a few yellows and pinks in to make it sparkle.
I'll be linking up with Cynthia for Sunday's Oh Scrap!
