Back in the days when my eyesight was better I used to be very fond of freezer paper applique, and this is one of the quilts I made at that time.
When I was at Girton College, Cambridge, back in the 1970s, the room used as the Junior Common Room was a wood panelled one, with huge floor to ceiling panels of Jacobean style embroidery all round the room. Ever since then, I have had a little corner of my mind that is entertained by the weird and wonderful nature of Jacobean design.
I originally intended the strips as borders for another quilt, but decided they looked better on their own. So I turned them into a strip quilt instead.
