More Mile a Minute

I've done lots of sewing this week, but very little quilting. I'm still hard at work on the costumes for the play. I have completed mine, Hazel's and Becky's, and only have Sally's top to finish, Jackie's shift and top and Nicky's top to do! Unfortunately the last couple of tops are the tricky ones. More on that later.
Yesterday I got so fed up with dressmaking that I spent some time putting together a Mile a Minute top for DD's boyfriend. He's a quilt-lover and constantly drools over DD's collection. Here's the top spread out on our bed.

Most of the fabric came from my strips box (why is it that no matter how many strips you take out, the box barely seems any emptier?) but I did cut into some of my novelty fabrics to liven it up a bit. I added a few strips of ironing fabric (hint, hint)

some skeletons (always popular)
a naughty lady left over from one of DD's quilts peeping at us, (incidentally, her friend is not naked, but wearing shorts!)

some 20s Flappers having fun,
a nod to technology with some mobile phones,

and cucumbers and a cupcake - who could make a quilt without those two motifs?!

And in the bottom corner, the young man's initial,
just in case anyone tries to purloin it!

Stunning quilt - he is going to be so pleased with it! It looks fab laid on the bed. How are you going to quilt it - an allover design?

The initial is a great idea. I quilted my kids names into their quilts. It's not very tidy, but if you know where to look....

Looks great...though I'm in agreement with you that the strips do multiply when we aren't looking.
