Stripper Strings

Oh wow! Now that I’m reading that title it looks really bad!  I’m hoping most of you realize that the stripper part refers to the Strip Quilter group I am a part of on Flickr. We are in the midst of round 4 and I finished my row yesterday. I attached it to the rest of the top but the pictures of the whole top together so far are AWFUL, so I will need to re-shoot another day. In the mean time the picture of the row turned out fairly well.

For those that didn’t guess from the title, I made string blocks. I will be doing a tutorial for these blocks later this month as part of the My Favorite Quilt Block QAL that is going on with Persimon Dreams, I will be the last one to go, and can I just say the blocks so far have been A-MAZ-ING!

This particular row is for FairlyMerry, she requested black and white with pops of Melon, which she provided, and it was a good thing too because this particular color was not in my stash!  I hope she likes them!

I will try and get another pic of the top as it is now with 4 rows on it but it won’t happen today as we are finally taking Anne to Seattle to ride the Ferris Wheel since she has wanted to go since the moment her daddy walked off the plane!

    What an interesting progression, especially because the guild challenge here is black and white and one color pop! I’ll be taking a close look at that tutorial. I know Anne will have a wonderful time on the Ferris Wheel. That’s my favorite ride – never miss it, no matter what other rides there are.

    Titles can be tricky. We had a Hanging Committee in our guild and there were times when I wasn’t the least bit surprised:)
