So my strippy baby quilt will be 20 2.5 inch rows, abot 50 inches long (minus seam allowances, so actually a fair bit smaller than that). I'm pretty happy with how I've laid it out, but I'm not going to show the top until it's done. So for now, all you get is a pic of what looks like very messy pinned fabric.
The class only had two students, and the woman teaching it seems really experienced and supportive. I learned some useful tips about measuring and cutting, and we had time to cut enough strips for six rows, lay them out, and label them. Homework was to finish up with this step, and if time allowed, square off all the ends of the pieces as well. The teacher felt bad asking me to do this, once I told her I had two children under three at home, but I will get a gold star for effort as I finished up last night. Late, but before bed, and before I put together the baked french toast for today's brunch we hosted.
Next week we'll sew the pieces together . . 2 hours of uninterrupted sewing time. Can't wait!
Hope you're all having a good weekend. It was 27C here yesterday which felt odd. Only 10C today, and expected to shoot back up to 30C tomorrow before dropping back down. All of these ups and downs are hard to handle!
