I got the second Strippie cut and pieced this afternoon thanks to the storms passing us by. I pinned it up on the design wall after piecing the smaller strips – while it’s not a directional fabric, depending on where the cuts occur some sections do seem to have an up side!
I now have 3 of these to practice on when the new longarm arrives.
I won’t sew over the weekend since Keith heads out again on Monday – his travel schedule has been very hectic – but I’ll work on the shell afghan after he goes to bed and next week, I’ve got some binding to do.
Here’s another cutie!
Hard not to smile just looking at the happy whales!
I’m curious about how you load it on the longarm because I have been thinking about making one myself. Typically I like about 4 or 5 inches extra on the width so that I can quilt on the longarm. Do you trim the quilt top a little more when you quilt on the longarm?
I love the cute fabrics.
So cute! Love it and I bet you are so excited for the new longarm.
