This Quick Strippie was pieced by Susan and it’s the first of the 6 quilts from Maine waiting for me to bind. Freehand quilted with swirls and loops.

I was much happier with the quilting on this one than on the one finished yesterday but as Dee said, we don’t always like EVERYTHING we do. I would say I’m very happy with about 95% of my quilts so I’ll count the moose wallhanging as a learning experience.

Maine quilt #2 is almost bound and I plan to finish that up today as well as load a top of mine on the longarm AFTER Keith and I go for a bike ride. All restaurants have been closed in Florida by order of the governor so we won’t be able to get lunch out or even stop for a beer but I’m ready to be outside for a while.

Today is National Quilting Day, what are your plans for sewing today?!


  1. I’m working on a monkey wrench quilt I started last year. All 48 blocks are nearly finished. Yahoo.

  2. Cute Strippie quilt!! Do you put flannel on the backs of the ones for children? Our restaurants are also closed. Drive ups are open and Starbucks but only for grab and go. I had to get some groceries yesterday and was surprised at the amount of people there. Not as many as usual but still more than I expected. We have had beautiful weather here in Seattle but today is a little overcast. Rain coming soon they say. Love the sunshine and being outside!! Enjoy your bike ride and your time together!
