Doormat Stripes

This is a quilt top that I made quite awhile ago. It was inspired by some wonderful doormats that were being sold in Schweinfurth Museum's gift shop.

I brought it out of the closet and decided to do a little restructuring on it. I changed out the lighter-colored center block, added more of the skinny strips, and changed the skinny strips so that they didn't run to the edges.

Because of the size of some of the blocks, the quilt had to be pinned on the long-arm machine vertically and then re-pinned on the frame horizontally.

It's quilted with wool batting and cotton thread. I think this vertical orientation "works", but I also like it in its original horizontal orientation.
