My First Strips
Hello all! I have my first 12 strips sewed, and more cut to size. I am using strips 2" x 8 1/2" for my quilt. I have some very sentimental pieces of fabric that have been saved since I started sewing 10 years ago. Also there are some fabric from a good friend in Japan that she sent home to me. The flower print below the black and white polka dots was the material I used to make my daughter a dress when I was pregnant with her, she is now 6. I also have to cut a strip from some fabric that I made my first ever pair of overalls for my daughter whom is 10 now, but when she was a little over a year old. In the picture to the left I have a strip of Amy Butler from my first ever quilt, etc. etc. etc. I am having so much fun with this and cannot wait to see how it grows and looks over the next year! Thanks for letting me join the fun!!
