I more or less made this up as I went along, using a roll of 2.5" strips my cousin Jill sent me. I had a vague idea in my head and went with it. I think the blocks only took a few hours to put together.
I sewed the blocks together into the top yesterday afternoon:
In the back of my mind, while I worked on it, was a gum I used to love when I was a kid. I could picture it, but couldn't come up with the name. My hubby Googled it for me last night - Fruit Stripe Gum!!! Remember that?!? See the connection? Ha! I love it! Maybe I need to put some zebra stripes on there somewhere. Maybe the back.
Speaking of which... here's what I'm probably using for the back:
The pink, the green, the purple, and frankly, probably some of that green, too. Oh. And I'm binding using the pink and blue. Because... yes. I used the whole roll of 2.5" strips for the top, so I have no more of any of those fabs. Oops. Maybe these new fabs would blend in better if I did throw some of the zebra stripe in...
Thanks for reading!
