Strip - O - Hoy Top...finished

Still having trouble with my computer...
Quickly sneaking this post in while the going is good!

It's great to have the S-O-H quilt top finished, it was easy enough to do, just took a little bit of extra effort to add a few more rows to make it a good lap size quilt.
I think I'll put it way for a while, sandwich and quilt it in the new year some time. I really want to get onto something else.
I'd like to have a change from the repro fabrics for a while and work on something different.

I have some Japanese fabrics left over from my Japanese quilt, I've been thinking of doing something with them. I do have a design in mind, but first I need to see if I have enough Japanese fabrics in my stash...I really don't want to buy any more.

Better go before I lose this post.
Take care..


  1. Hi Julia, I'm back, your quilt is looking fabulous, I bet the materials are so much prettier in reality.
    Sorry to hear about your computer, I must remember to do a backup again soon too. :)
    & where would we be without our fabric stashes, I keep saying I will use some of it before I buy any more, but, guess what! lol.

  2. That is really beautiful! I love the pattern and the fabrics! Very nice job!!! Can't wait to see what you decide to make next!

  3. Wow ... nice to hear a new spurt of creativity is on it's way ... that's what we like and you can do it! Remember, I still have quite a lot of nice Japanese fabrics and you are welcome to them.
    Dear Oy is here and having a great weekend!
    Hugs - Lurline.

  4. It will be a great lap quilt; have fun with your new project!

  5. I love this quilt pattern. I don't think that I have ever seen it before but will have to review my quilt books and look for it. Do you have a new blog banner? I don't remember this one. My next charm quilt will be with this block. Love it.

  6. Wow Julia that is absolutely stunning. Well done.

  7. Looks great Julia!
    Tucking something away for a while and working on something new is good for the soul... That is where I am at right now. 3 UFOs out of my way, work on something new, then back to the UFOs in a week or two. 8-)
    Japanese fabrics... oh yummy!

  9. Love the quilt - I need to get back to quilting one of these days.


  11. What a wonderful quilt. I love that you used some leftovers to do it. I have bunches and am always trying to come up with something different to do with them.

  12. Great quilt-such a graphic design. Wow.

  13. Your SOH looks fabulous!! good vibes for other aspects!

  14. Love the new quilt Julia and I just adore the hexagon scarf, where did you get the pattern for it?

  15. I like your quilt. Somehow it reminds me of milk and cookies. I don't know why it does, but it does.
