Started Strip Searching

As a quilter I am learning more about myself. I think things work better for me if I stick to one project at a time. That way, I don't lose track of where I have been and things seem to go smoother. That said I do get distracted easily, because as I start to sew, it frees up brain space to come up with other ideas for projects I am working on.

Right now, I am working on my Strip Search quilt. It will definitely have a new name in the end. Here is my progress so far.




My Strips


My A Set of Blocks



The B set ready to be sewn together

I started it on Friday and only worked on it this weekend. I am really happy with it. I loved it when it was in the strips, and almost did not cut it up. It always makes me nervous to cut something once it is sewn. I decided that I did need to cut it , and try something new and I am glad I did.

I am going to be machine quilting soon. MQ and I have had a long history together and I am ready to tackle it again. If anyone has suggestions to make mq easier I would gladly take them. The largest I have ever machine quilted is a baby size quilt, and I would like to quilt some lap quilts.

Hope you are making progress too,
