Gearing up to Strip

Have I mentioned before that I’m a stripper. Yes, I said Stripper!  And not only that but I joined a group of strippers too!

I got to give my row in person to my fellow stripper Jovanna a couple of weeks ago when I met her and the lovely Shanna in person!  I love meeting my online friends in person. Anne fell instantly in love with the both of them and we had a lovely afternoon together. I also received Shanna’s amazing row in person that day, check it out below!

Holy Buckets Batman, isn’t it just STUNNING!!! Do you see the lovely curved block smack in the middle?  Remember it for later.

The first order of business was to select fabrics. I had to head to my favorite LQS, Ruby Street Quiltworks to pick up a couple of browns, but the rest I had on hand.

Next order of business, test blocks. Shanna’s only requirements are that each block contain a triangle and be between 12″ and 14′ finished.

I started making test blocks using the new Hex N More Ruler by Jaybird Quilts (look for a review to come soon) and I also made one using my wonderful 60 degree diamond ruler.

My favorite test block so far is the one that I designed using the Quick Curve Ruler (look for a tutorial some day soon!)

So here’s my progress so far as a stripper. What do you think?

In other news, my appointment on Monday was thoroughly depressing and I will be having 4 more subsequent follow up appointments over the course of the next 3 weeks.  Wish me luck!

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway from Fat Quarter Shop, it ends tomorrow night!
