Two-sided quilt finished

At last I've finished this quilt. I love doing two-sided quilts -- love using up lots of scraps, in this case, blue on the front and green [and blue-greens] on the back and some true red fabrics I also had. The squares are meant to be a bit wonky, in fact I though I was being wonkier than they really turned out to be. I didn't measure the quilt, but it's not actually square, rather, about 50x56.

I'm on a bit of a roll now and making two two-sided little quilties. They won't take long, happily.

I love both colorways but the 2nd one is my favorite. When you say 2-sided quilt, do you mean "quilt as you go"?

Laura, yes, it is quilt as you go and the stripping method is one I learned from a book on two-sided quilts by Sharon Pederson.

I have one called Machine Quilting in Sections by Marti Mitchell (found it in my mother's books when she died) and I think it's the same method. Gonna have to put it on my "to-do" list!
