Improv Strip Sets Revisited

Wow, it is cold outside.  I'm distracting myself from the subzero temps forecast for us overnight and a third snow day in a row tomorrow by playing with my scrap strips.  I was inspired by the colors in this photo.  It made me remember why green is my favorite color and wonder why I don't sew with it more!
I'm creating simple 5 x 10 finished blocks from improv strip sets, just like the ones I made for The Therapist.  They couldn't be easier to sew, and they use up all those skinny leftover strips.

I plan on making 40 blocks for a 40 x 50 baby quilt, very similar to Partly Cloudy.  I have just a few more blocks to make, and then I will play with the layout.

Oh, this looks fun! I am just now thinking of creating a strip quilt (influenced by 'Gone Aussie' Quilting--which is how I found your site). I, too, am getting 3 snow days... What I really like are your prints with text/fonts. I've been out of the quilt world for a while and now I will purchase some of those. Thank you for the inspiration!

I'm sure I'm going to love this. I love this oolor combination. I love when the sky is gray and the green of the grass looks so saturated. At some point, I would like to make a quilt in these color too.

I LOVE your colors! I saw a sign a few days ago that had green and grey together and though how they would make a great quilt!
