cotton & steel quilt top

I finished my cotton and steel quilt top.  I made 16 patches, then sewed them together.  I used this method and it works like a charm.  Easier than sewing (and cutting) every individual square together, but still looks random.  It's twin size, so now I have to decide quilting.  Something easy...

**I've had several questions about the size of the squares.  They finish at 2 inches, so I cut them at 2.5inches.

  2. It looks great! I look forward to seeing how you quilt it. Diagonal straight lines?

  3. I really like how all the cotton and steel fabrics work together. Nice scrappy quilt. I just finished up two stockings using C & S and I am pleased with them.
    Happy stitching
