Promenade Stripping

Seriously?!

Yeah, I know that I cannot fool you quilters. You know exactly what I'm talking about, and you do it too!

I have finally stripped my Promenade fabric by Riley Blake into 2 and a half-inch strips. I've been holding onto this fabric for far too long. I'm sewing the strips into 12-inch blocks. With 4 blocks together, it makes a nice big X.

Well, now that's a little x-rated! I'm so just kidding. My humor is terrible. I will stick to quilting.

I think this will end up to be a 70-inch square quilt. That's a good size, I think. I love this promenade fabric.

In other news, my oldest ginger turned 6 years-old over the weekend. I was finally able to give her the mermaid pillow. She told me a week before her birthday that I better get working on this and finish soon. She didn't know that I had already finished it weeks ago. Ha Ha! She loved it, and my heart was so overjoyed.

Ginger #1 is in love with Rapunzel now. So, I made her a matching cake.

  3. I love the fabric. How did I miss that collection. I don't believe I've seen it before. Your Ginger is gorgeous. She would fit right in with our family of redheads and strawberry blondes. She looks so squeezable. Can you tell I don't have any little children at home? LOL.

  9. OH wow, I would have held on to the fabric forever too. I LOVE it. And I love strip piecing. I think it's my favorite, because it's so mindless and easy and it always looks good. Have a fabulous, not so G rated week. Nice to meet you.
