What I'm Working On…7/27/2105

…I finished sewing my Strip Tube quilt together and sure enough, I pulled the bias edges out of whack.

*bummer*

I decided to sew my inner/ outer border together and treat them as one unit. I measured down the middle of the quit and cut the borders that size then sewed it together to *fit*.

I hope it quilts out…*grin*

Saturday's Sewing 7.25.2015

…and a little from Friday, too!

About three years ago, I brought the Strip Tube Ruler while at the Madison (Wisconsin) Quilt Expo.

I was intrigued by the technique and the resulting blocks.


Fast forward to May 2015, Terri at Ben Franklin Crafts demonstrated the Strip Tube Ruler at Quilt Club. I was once again, intrigued.

So I dug out the ruler and found a pattern I liked on Pinterest -- sorry no link back as it was uploaded by the Pinterest Board User --- and set to work on it.

Here is what I have so far.

The black is a little short so I need to make another tube set to get the three remaining blocks blocks. I'm really liking it but all the edges are bias. Hope I don't pull *it* all out of shape as I sew it together!

Whoop! Whoop! 7.24.2015

I added a little more background and sashings to my next galaxy quilt!

Whoop! Whoop!

A bonus for me --- all fabric from the stash! This flimsy will go into a bag with the other star fabric to be quilted at some time in the future.  :)

I cut my star strips into 3.5 inch squares and attempted to mix them up.
