Birmingham Quilt Show - strip pieced quilts

Here are some of my favorite quilts from the Birmingham Quilt Show. I took just over a dozen photos and I am going to upload them over several days. I have put the quilts in categories to help show why they appealed to me. Today I am showing strip pieced quilts by Sally Brus because I have spent the past 2 years making log cabin, pineapple and jelly roll quilts so I am really into stripping! I think Sally and I may be soul stripping sisters.

#1 in A Series - what a teaser, I like this one so much with its asymetrical design that I can hardly wait to see #2, #3, etc. The bold dark colors are even more tantalizing set against the lime green background fabric.

Crazy Geese - Not all of Sally's strips are horizontal, in both right and left sides of the quilt she added a minimum of short, vertical strips. The flying geese panel is offset to the left, another great design element. The quilt would not have been nearly as interesting if the geese were flying smack dab up the center.
