Sunday Strips

Sometimes a Want-To-Do take control over the Need-To-Dos, and I am sure you have experienced it too, haven't you ? :-)

As you see, my Want-To-Do is strip and scrap related right now, and I pulled a lot of fabrics/scraps and cut them into 2,5" stripes and 4,5" squares.
I am not one who can have a lot of ready cut stripes in boxes - my mind just don't work that way.
I need to know what I am cutting for, always.

Stripe sets got sub cut and sewn into 4-patches.
I have not made a double 4-patch quilt in a long time, and I am eager to get some old fabrics out of here.

Mary's quilt was my inspiration - thanks Mary :-)

Alycia has a great tutorial now in June if you have never made a double 4-patch quilt before.

I guess I am not alone, as I too was inspired by Alycia to make a double nine patch even tho I have about 10 other starts that need to be finished.

Those strips are so yummy looking - they make my mouth water! I can't wait to see what you're making!

Love these colors! I was just thinking today that when I start my next quilt - I need to cut for 2 or 3 at the same time. I don't precut my stuff either but when cutting scrap quilts, I do like to cut for more than one at a time.
