In my head, I refer to this pattern as Strip Tango since the pieces are basic 4.5" strips from fat quarters, though I haven't actually created a pattern for it (I just might have to do that!) This quilt sort of came together like a big puzzle. I knew that I wanted the cutting to be simple, and that I wanted the strips to be arranged randomly throughout the quilt. Beyond that, I just started laying it out and sewing it together!
The fabrics are a mix of Amy Butler's Cameo, Lark, Love, and Alchemy lines. Since the front of the quilt was so vibrant, I opted to use this pretty gray fabric along with the scraps for the backing. To give you an idea of the scale, the entire label only measures 2.5 x 3 inches. I've really worked to keep my handwriting small so that my labels don't take up too much space on the back of the quilt.
I made this quilt in January, when the grip of winter was making everything so bitterly dreary. The simple, but fun piecing of these Amy Butler fabrics brightened my day then, and it still does!
