Inspiration

My friend showed me this quilt made by her grandma. 
In love?
I am.
Here's the back where you can see she used thin muslin as her foundation for all those strips.
Since it's not quilted yet.....
We get to see the "guts".  Lol!

That would be a lot of fun to try to duplicate! It looks like propeller blades to me :) Her grandma had a great sense of color!
