Finished strippy quilt (in traditional style )

Since finishing my 10 week blog on North Country quilts I have been working on my two hangings , one traditional and one contemporary, based on the North Country ( Durham ) quilts. 
This traditional one is pieced together using English paper piecing, then quilted with traditional strippy patterns using hand quilting thread. I wanted to make the back look as good as the front and used coloured quilting thread to show up the designs.


For the contemporary  quilt I am using a variety of appliqué and embroidery stitches. Again I am working the back to look as detailed as the front . 
This is a photo of work in progress. More photos to come as I progress with the work .
