Floral and zebra Strips 'n Curves

"Strips 'n Curves" is a book written by Louisa A. Smith. I have made several quilts using her method. You choose a group of strips and sew several stratas with those strips. Then using acrylic template shapes many pieces are cut and sewn into blocks. Blocks are then arranged on a design wall and the last few blocks are made to specifically fill in and complete the design. This quilt TOP is 54.5" X 82". Most of the outside edges are bias and it has been staystitched around the edge twice to control it. I have 8 - 3" strips of the same zebra fabric that is used in the arcs to use as a first border if desired. SOLD
