Strip Club 08282010

About once a month a bunch of us get together to work on projects constructed from pre-cut fabirc strips and/or squares.  You've seen our projects before... like the running away from home tote bag or the original log cabin star quilt.  This time we worked on a quilt designed by a Houstonian that is offered in the Moda Bakeshop.

Essentially it is a small (34" x 40") quilt made up of 2 1/2" strips that have been sub-cut into smaller strips.  Every couple of strips you add a solid fabric strip and a ruffle on top of it.

Here are some works in progress -

Mine is not pictured as I am still working on it.  It is black and white, I did not sub-cut the strips and, by the time I was finished putting the strips together, I had a huge headache.  I hope that when it is done the final recipient won't get a headache when they use it!

If you come and play with us you can also work on your own projects.  One woman was putting together blocks for a quilt for her son who just started at Baylor.  Another was putting together a quilt top for her grandson's big boy bed.

I started off putting together a couple of blocks for this month's block lottery.  Fortunately the woman who runs the lottery blocks was there so I don't have to remember to bring them to the quilt guild meeting nect week.
What a great way to spend a day with friends!
