What a terrific idea, Kathy. Your Dad's quilt is beautiful.
It would work with most stripey fabric I guess - with different results
I rarely work with stripes, because of the 'keeping them straight'
problem (I know I shouldn't let it bother me, but ...!); but this could
be a use-up pattern.
I also have some lovely patterned stripes like yours. Oh, now I have
two great things to do, post 30 October >g<
I shall print the message for reference, in case the time to do them
gets further away!
