A Different Design Idea!

Somehow, this:

And this:

Turned into this:

I spent some time over the last few days arranging and rearranging the eight 4 inch x 22 inch strips of various greens from my stash, and ended up sewing them all together without any sashing.  It made an interesting pattern because I started with four strips and cut each of them in half.  I really like the gradation of color from light to dark that you see when they are sewn together this way!
Right now this quilt is 24 inches wide, so just about perfect for a table topper or a mini.  I just have to decide if I want to add a border to make it bigger or not.  This will be a good size project to try some FMQ on.  I definitely need the practice!
This quilt is inspired by Quilting is More Fun than Houseworks's Scrap-a-Palooza series, Quilt #7. (Even though I really took off on a completely different tangent!)  It has been fun to experiment with color!
