The Primitive Strip Quilt


I finally finished adding all the sections to my primitive strip quilt.
I just need to add the borders which will be a red plaid. 
 

 
A close-up of the strips. 
Most of the fabrics are vintage Brannock & Patek fabrics.
 
 
My quilt is based on a 1930 African American quilt from the book
The Ultimate Quilting Book by Maggie McCormick Gordon.

  1. Wow, what a difference color makes! I'm so partial to Primitive, it "speaks to me". Can't wait to see the plaid border.
