The Primitive Strip Quilt

I started this primitive strip quilt
way back in April of 2015.
Lots of strips made with mostly
vintage Brannock and Patek fabrics.

 I machine quilted it this past week...not an easy task
as it's quite large and bulky.
I just machine quilted in the ditch around each panel
and a few strips if the panel was large.

My quilt is based on a 1930 African American quilt from
the book Ultimate Quilting Book by
Maggie McCormick Gordon.


  1. It's beautiful 😍 Nancy!

  2. Oh wow! I loooooove this one! Well done, I just adore quilts with many, many fabrics, scrappy ones are always my favorite as are strip quilts. Great inspiration, that is a wonderful book. Congratulations with this wonderful quilt.

  3. stunning! I love African American quilts. Have you checked out Gees Bend Quilts and their stories?

  4. I love, love, love this quilt! So spirited and fun looking. You made an amazing interpretation!

  5. Love it! Great way to use up scraps as well.
