Yet Another Flimsy

Hurray! The window is back for loading pictures in Compose mode! Could be it's been back for a while; Heaven knows I've been gone long enough. At least I feel very close to what's normal for me today. {whew!}

So while I've been away from the computer I made good on my threat to use that fast strippy technique again. I pulled out my flannel remnants though, not my already-cut scrap strips. I also used wider strips than were in the jelly roll packet of Pink Lemonade. My initial strip was a little shorter but I ended up with a flimsy virtually the same size as Pink Lemonade (previous post).


I managed to deplete the flannel stash somewhat but there's still plenty in there I'll have to deal with eventually. One yard of a blue plaid made a good border on this top, making it just big enough for a twin size bed.


I have backing fabric prepared, just have to sew up the long seams to make it a whole piece in the right shape. Then it can go with my son to La Conner Machine Quilting Experience for quilting.

I put the borders on my row-by-row quilt top since my last post too:


It's also ready now to be quilted. I even have the binding made, of the same print in the outer border.


I finished my Sketchbook Project and sent it in about a week before the deadline. Woohoo! Someday I'll load the photos of the pages and share them with you. Frankly, I find photo editing and posting a bit tedious. It's too annoying to do when I'm not feeling well and when I feel great I want to be doing other things. So there you are. However, yesterday I submitted a photo of my work space for the Encyclopedia of Work Spaces. It's free, go check it out!

This strippy technique looks so fun, and both your tops turned out so nice. This seems like a great stashbuster.

Love those fast strippies. The more challenges life gives us the quicker and easier we need our projects to be! Love all of your gorgeous complicated ones too..oh my you do some nice work and I always love your color combos!!!
