Inspired by a quilt I saw somewhere on Crafster awhile ago, I got out some of my unused jelly roll strips, and pieced together a super, duper simple quilt.  This is by far the simplest quilt I have ever made, but I still really like it.

I used variegated thread throughout - pink on the pink strips, green on the green, purple on the purple, then I waited.  What to do with the white parts?  Mettler threads to the rescue- I found a light pink to white variegated thread that was just perfect for the white parts.  Problem solved. You can kinda-sorta see the variegations on the back:
