Sewing Strips......

I thought a sewer of strips of fabric could be termed a stripper.... but apparently that doesn't fit the definition ....!!!!

Ooooops....

I have had a happy time stripping....  sewing strips .....


.... and more stripping .....lots of strips....


... and then slightly different stripping.... sewing the strips together....


... until a pattern on a flimsy formed.....

... can you spot the mistake in my act?..... 


.... here is a close up..... 


... a bit of reverse stripping and it is all fixed..... 


... fresh and pretty....


There were some blocks of white and colours left over and I have a little 'hint' of a need for grandiegirls made.... (nothing to do with stripping I might say - more of  a square dance this time) ...


Righto, Gotto Go.... I'm trying to tidy up things .. that's why this project came to light....

I see your sentiment, the maker of stripes could be a stripper........ whatever you call it, I love your quilt, very pretty, and no I couldn't spot the mistake. Lovely way to pass the time rather than tidying up xcx

Such a pretty quilt top, love that chevron pattern. Are the grandies getting doll quilts or cushions?
