I haven't counted the strip sets that I finished but there must be well over 60.
My box of strips ready to be sewn.
A few strip sets, pressed and trimmed.
The finished strip sets in their box.
The next batch of fabrics waiting to be cut.
I am sewing them together in strips of 5 - 7 and then cutting a few different fabrics to add to the mix. This way I hope to get a very random mixture of colour and pattern.
I should tell you that I am not being anally precise in sewing these strip sets. This project is all about getting the fabrics used, I am trimming all the sets to 4 3/4" wide. It may be a bit fiddly but will give me (fingers crossed) an easy finish, with straight as a dye seams. Ooops, perhaps writing that was a bit too cheeky and asking for trouble. Oh well, never mind.
While I was in the shop there was a delivery of Lewis and Irene fabric. Right on top were some Layer Cakes in the Botanics (?) range, something like that anyway, I pounced and one is now tucked away waiting for the strip quilt to be finished. I have a pattern in mind and a recipient, even though this was a spur of the moment decision.
I have some shopping to get done, it will happen at some point over the weekend.
I need to go undies shopping soon as well, my knickers are definitely showing their age. Just like bra's and tights I have fitting issues, I like ones that almost come to my waist with a high rise leg and no lace trim round the legs. The last lot came from Damart and were a fantastic buy in the sale.
I will have a look on their website and as I want to go to Magic and Sparkle for a bra fitting I will have a look in there also.
Ooh a quick memory of Princess Anne telling the world that her "unmentionables" came from M&S, how many years ago was that?
Now I am off to the craft room to have a cutting session.
Enjoy the weather, it is glorious here. Here's hoping that it lasts for the weekend.
