Strip Star

A did some more piecing on the blue top.    I made the center with 2.5 inch precuts in blue winter prints.   It turns out the roll only had 20 strips…..and I made 6 strip sets of 3 (so I have 2 of the white leftover) 3 sets of mostly dark, and 3 of light.   each set will make one point of the star.


A yard and 1/2 of background fabric filled it in.


then Teddy checked it out.


next I started to sew it together in strips


It will also get a border…..and will finish at about 46×52  depending on the border ….I also have a package of Christmas prints in red and green and gold so I think I will make one with those too.

A few days ago I posted a few studio pictures after I hung some of my paintings……here are two over the cutting table

I will hopefully have the finished star top to show tomorrow 🙂

Happy Quilting

    Beautiful top! Someone gave me a strip set awhile back and I haven’t dared cut into it yet. And your paintings are wonderful. Teddy looks like he’s getting his winter coat.
