leather strips

This is the third lap quilt that I made.  I used a package of 2 1/2 strips that I bought from the Santa Rosa Quilt show.  Up close, the fabric looks like suede, but it is not as good a quality as the Cherrywood.  I challenged myself to use all the strips in the packet.  It was fun to make.  First I matched two colors and made 4 patches.  Then I put them up on the design wall and made the pattern I thought looked the best.  Then I sewed them together.  It is quilted in the ditch on both the horizontal and vertical seams.
