My friend Erin, being the very speedy crafter that she is, has already finished her version of the Staggering Strips Baby Quilt from my book! Isn’t it GORGEOUS? I love love love her colors… charcoal grey with pops of pink – this is actually the color palette I’m considering for my living room!
(Full disclosure, she saw this pattern before the book went on sale so she’s not quite that speedy — but she’s still pretty speedy! She made this whole quilt in just one week. And it was her first finished quilt ever! Impressive, right?)
Here’s the original quilt from the book, which is a baby quilt. Erin modified her version by making it throw size and making her strips chunkier, and of course changing the colors. This is such a simple quilt that it’s super easy to personalize, so you really could do almost anything with it.
…and then tied it up and gifted it to her cousin for her bridal shower. As you can see, Erin is a talented crafter and an amazing photographer, so head on over to her blog to check out some more of her projects. Thanks for sharing, Erin!
