I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to write up a tutorial for my Strip Tango pattern. Since making Bohemian Charm, this has been one of my go-to patterns when I need a quick quilt that is perfect for showing off pretty fabrics. In fact, I just posted another quilt I've been working on with this pattern in a twin size!
This quilt only requires nine fat quarters to put together, although I used extra fabrics because I prefer a little more variety. Since I used more than nine fabrics, I had some leftover strips, which I pieced into the backing.
Springtime in Texas means that roadsides, hills, and fields are covered with bluebonnets- the state flower of Texas. The beautiful blues and greens of this quilt remind me a lot of that gorgeous sight. Although my family moved from Texas almost 8 years ago, we really loved the 7 years we lived in Texas, and this is certainly one of the things I miss. In this photo they look purple, but they are really the most brilliant blue, and are quite a sight to behold. (photo courtesy of www.statesymbolsusa.org)
Head over to Fort Worth Fabric Studio to check out the tutorial for this quilt. I hope you enjoy it!
