Strip Tango Dinosaurs


I'm back today with a recent quilt finish.  It's not a UFO finish, but it's not a UFO either, so that progress.  I friend of mine is expecting her second (great) grandson and I wanted to help her celebrate by gifting a quilt.  It's what we do.  Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation's Strip Tango is my new go-to baby quilt pattern, especially when I need one in a hurry.  All you need is a few fat quarters, and the large strips sew up super quick for a quilt finish.

After some discussion, it was decided we would go with a dinosaur theme for the quilt.  I found this fun bundle on amazon and mixed with it a few other fabrics I had on hand.  In less than a few hours I had a completed top.

For the quilting I went with something I can stitch quickly and probably at this point in my sleep...good ol' stippling.  For my thread color I opted for Aurifil 1126 Blue Grey because I loved that it blended well across the quilt without completing with the prints.

It's now time for this little quilt to make its way to the new baby due to arrive any day.

I love working on simpler projects when I've had a large break in my quilting time.  It feels like gently sliding back into things.  Plus, sometimes you just need a quick finish to get the quilting juices flowing again.  This project has inspired me to pull out a pretty close to finished UFO from 2015.  I hope to be sharing that finish with you pretty soon.  Until then I will leave you with a few pictures of other Strip Tango's I have made.

Of course in true UFO fasion...this one hasn't been quilted yet :)

Wonderful quilt for a wee one! Love that you are doing a bunch of small projects to get back in. The other two Tango Strip quilts are great, too. It looks so different in different fabrics.
