Strip cutting

Boy do I miss my sewing machine! But I am cutting strips and looking at more patterns. Buggy Barn has a new book out called Positively Crazy and there is a Christmas quilt in it that I HAVE to make for sure. It is Santa hiding behind a Christmas tree. Gotta buy that book today.

I'm auditioning the 2nd color for my strip quilt. I've cut out a good pile of blues. Not so sure about the greens with it. Not much contrast.
I really like the yellows with the blues. That would make a very happy quilt.

Of course, I do have a lot of reds. Putting white down the center of each block would give it a very patriotic look.
Of course, I still have lots of blues, in lighter tones, so I could make a totally blue quilt dividing the lights from the darks. Oh, decisions, decisions, decisions!!

Happily cutting! Lynda

I hope you have a good movie to watch while you cut strips, with no sewing - no gratification when you can't see what you've made!

Great idea to fill in the "missing my sewing machine blues". You are going to be ready to get down to business. What kind of strip quilt are you making?

Oh I feel your pain! I still shudder when I remember the empty spot on my sewing table - I hope he comes back soon.
