I have my top done as well, just hadn't uploaded the photos yet.  I apologize in advance for the full quilt picture.  I couldn't figure out how to make it all fit in the picture without being far away from it.  It's basically a Lone Star quilt middle, without the sashing fabrics.

So here's the whole thing:


For reference, my bed is a queen size bed and the bump at the side of the picture is my pillow, which is right at the top of the bed.

Here's a picture of the center:


I did something completely silly and forgot to include my fabric strip in the quilt, but I used most of them up, except for the one that wasn't quite big enough that I kept for me, so it will be included in the binding.

I'm planning on backing it with a batik and binding it with more bits of the fabrics.  I do have some of the strips left, but I have plans for a second quilt with them, so they definitely won't go to waste.   Grin

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

if you work out how to make time could I convince you to write a tutorial? lol

I can put together a tute in a few days maybe, it's almost embarassing how easy it is!  There's so much to do with it

I'm a little confused right now but just following the trend - it's seems that finished tops are being posted in this thread rather than the gallery so I'll do the same.

So basically what I did was sew all my strips together to get this:

             

and then I cut nine 15" squares from the sewn together section - which proved to be a little tougher than I thought since, as you can see, the strips aren't all the same length and I had to be rather creative for the last 2 squares and ended up piecing a few remants together to get enough space to cut a square.

Then I used 3 different stack and wack 'designs' to make crazy squares, cut the results down to 13 1/2", sewed them all together and came up with this:


             


It's 36" x 36" and, honestly, turned out much better than I thought it would  Grin  When I first started I thought it would look like a giant mess but I'm very pleased with how it looks.

This is it all finished, I'm not putting a border around it, instead, when I do get around to finishing it, I'll probably just bind it with a dark green bias tape.  Then the 'problem' will be how to quilt it - maybe I'll try a go at free motion, you never know.

That is pretty cool! I think mine will be similar in method. I bought my extra piece today and I am just going to sew them all up and chop them. I don't know how it'll look but I am encouraged by yours Smiley
