Day 12 of Blogtoberfest.
The rest did me good yesterday. I read a bit, napped a bit and sewed a bit. And... Yippee! I finished this strippy quilt top that I have been working on since, well, I really don't know when. A long time, that's for sure.
It was the first strip quilt I ever started and I didn't know too much about sewing strips together and ending up with bias edges. So I decided to sew them onto pieces of muslin. It worked, but the quilt top alone, is very heavy. I don't think I will have to put a batting in it. Maybe a very thin, light batting. But I could probably just add a backing and quilt it. Now I sew the strips to paper and that seems to work better.
I also started something new. I know, I know. Shouldn't be starting new stuff when I am buried in UFOs, but I couldn't help myself. I saw this quilt-along and tutorial posted by Jennifer on Ellison Lane Quilts. I am already several days behind, but I can catch up. Only have to make 4 a day for a few days. Yeah, like that's going to happen. I really like this quilt though and I will work away on it, using my scraps, which I have tons of, until it is done. Here is my first purple block.
