After Setting aside the 30's tumblers, & working on piecing some backs and tops - I cut up some strips.
Before "noodles" & Jelly Rolls, one of my local shops had baggies of 2 inch wide strips - darks & lights for sale. (I think that they thought that the buyer would made a log cabin quilt with them...)
I bought one of each & there they sat for YEARS! So this weekend, I decided that since my father will be visiting after the birth, I should make the quilt that I have been planning to make for him forever - "railroad crossing." To say he is a Model railroad fan is to put is mildly.
So I am sewing the strips together in random pairings...
This one decided to nip at me because I was "bugging him."
(This photo is after that episode where I am counting strips & separating them a bit more for easier piecing. - yes he is covered in strips - he is a bit stubborn.)
