well, not quite....but I still have waaaay too many cold symptoms. Darn. It makes you feel just awful...yukky. Little to no energy beyond the bare basics. But of course I have to sew...that's what keeps me sane, for the most part anyway *G* Needless to say I haven't exhaused my interest in the Strippy type quilts. This one is #4. I've been thinking about doing one in which I vary the width of the strips. I'm still using the original format, but not the 'bottom to the top' row routine. I make up a huge pile of sewn together strips, measure off the length I want the quilt to be and cut. The severed off part is the top of the next row.
And I have been thinking about putting in another(or two)form of piecing, such as a row of HSTs. Maybe 3.5" next to the 2.5" strip row, etc. I have alot of sewn up 3.5" HSTs I could use. But what caught my eye today, was a baggie of 2.5" amish color squares. That lead me to a bin of 1.5" squares. I've pieced together a row of those also, and they are on the other side of the top. Not sure what comes next...*VBS*, but it's fun figuring it out.
I have received an award but can't find the picture. I'll be back soon to change that and give the proper credit.
