My Reversible Quilt

Before I talk about this quilt I would like to thank everyone for helping me with my Hexie search.  You lead me to many great spots! In helping me I hope others were also helped. I now know what I am going to do with my hexie flowers.
But that will be a different post for another day. Thank you!

Now on to today.
A while ago there was a thought that there might be a Peanuts Blog Hop. Unfortunately that did not materialize. So, I decided to go ahead and use the fabrics I had be saving for the project.

I saw this pattern at a quilt shop and just fell in love with it so I quickly bought the fabrics.
This is my kind of quilt, strips!  Thar's all it was, just strips!

In no time the top was done. But I needed a backing. So, what to you know but on that same day I found the Berenstain Bear Fabric.

This would combine my two loves.
I ador anything Peanuts and I love the Berenstain Bear Books.  They were read over and over to my three girls and now to my grand-babies. So here she is, my reversible quilt!

I did not have the heart to cut this fabric. Even if I fussy cut some blocks I would have lost the cute print. So it became a great backing.

  5. Now there's a quilt topic to be enjoyed by one and all, young and old. It's great in your strip pieced design.

  8. Cute Jane! It reminds me of a reversible quilt I made when my girls were young! One side was a Christmas Barn scene for kids and the other was pink and blue polka dots making the block design. I had forgotten about that quilt! Thanks for the memory! Your quilt will be loved for sure!

  10. Such a fun strip quilt! I started making strip quilts last year for babies and kids and love it. They go together so quickly and easily and you get to showcase a bunch of fabrics. What I like most is that people are actually willing to use a strip quilt. Sometimes pieced blocks can look so fancy that people are afraid to use/ruin a quilt so it stays in a closet.
