Yesterday and today, I replenished my supply of straight pins, increased my supply of safety pins, and went to three stores before finding a flat sheet at the right price point and with the right “look.”
The top is currently halfway pinned to the batting and backing. I still need to buy a walking foot with the Christmas money that I have saved. I can buy one now that I have decided where to sew quilting lines. I didn’t want to buy something and not use it. But now I have opened the issue with the strippy quilt —
Strippy quilts are great because they use up your scraps. They also go together quickly because there is no strict pattern to adhere to. BUT, there are no clear lines for you to sew, once the top is finished. I just figured everything in my head today.
