Matching those pesky points on my Hour Glass quilt has really slowed me down, but the end is in sight. So, I have begun doing some prep work for my next project. Ever since I saw some of the quilts Wanda Hanson has posted on her blog, Exubertant Color, I have wanted to try my hand at a technique in the book, Strips That Sizzle, by Margaret Miller.
You can go to Wanda’s site and find a side bar link that will take you to some of her Strips That Sizzle quilts. The basic technique requires a minimum of eight fabrics from two color ways. The fabrics must be sorted in sequence of darkest to lightest and this is proving to be a challenge. Perhaps making a black and white copy of the strips will keep me on the right track. This will be (yet another) quilt in purples and teals and I began cutting my teal strips on Saturday.
I ran out of time before doing the purples, and this post is a bit of a cheat since nothing is on my design wall.
The cutting mat and excess fabric have been put away for the week. We are enjoying a very special visitor. A grandson does have priority!
