Happy strips to you too :-)

P1070839Maybe I can claim I am spring cleaning ??
– or maybe not, as I am making a mess in the quilt corner ;-)

Well – it is always nice to sort and “clean” in the fabric collection, and making care quilts is always nice, like paying it forward.

The red, pink and white top I made right after my neighbour died 3 weeks ago today. It was comforting to sort, cut and speed sew to relieve both stress and grief.

The blue top I made today, to check how much time is used to make one of these 1600” tops.
All in all I used 3 hours, from I pulled the box out of the closet,sorted the fabrics, cut 2,5” strips, approx. 40 meters in strips, joined them all to a 1600” strip, and doubled, doubled again, and again, and again, and again :-)

We will have a sew together for care quilts 6.- 7.April in my guild, Bærum Lappelag. Maybe some can be inspired by my tops ? I’ll bring them to the meeting tonight :-206561_463353477046341_1451758738_n
