I mentioned in my last post that I would be attending the monthly strip club at my local quilt store. The store began holding these back in March, but this was my first time. I went with my sister-in-law, Judy. This was her first time at strip club too.
Judy is busy stitching her strips together.
Since we had the pattern for the class in advance, I had all of my fabrics cut into 2.5 inch strips and ready to go. Or so I thought. Judy had all of her strips sub-cut into the different lengths that were called for in the pattern. Sigh. Appearantly, I was not paying attention when the shop owner told us that most people have all their cutting done before class. Note to self: pay attention! I ,however, was not the least prepared person at class. There were two ladies who had none of their cutting done before class started.
I brought along my trusty featherweight, Flo. Here she is set up at our table. See the nice cluttered mess I have? I didn't get too much sewing in, since I was busy cutting my strips down most of the class.
This is what I managed to get done in class.
Judy managed to get substantially farther than I did. Aren't her fabrics pretty?
Some of the more experienced strippers managed to get most of their piecing done. I'm not sure I could be friends with the likes of her. ;) She makes me feel a bit inadequate.
I have not worked on this quilt since class last Friday. I think I will save it to work on at next months class. I may not be a quick stripper, but I do enjoy the social interaction.
