A Scrappy Shabby Chic Strip Quilt

Wow, it has been quite around here.  I didn’t mean to go so long without posting but between a secret sewing project (to be revealed later) and focusing on family, I took a little longer break than usual.  So I am happy that I am finally getting around to blogging this scrappy shabby chic strip quilt.  This quilt was one of those WIPs that went on for several years.  In fact I started it when my oldest girl was 2.  I finished it earlier this year, but just hadn’t had a chance to snap some pictures.  I love all these florals that interact to give it a shabby chic look.
