Another Strippy

Last Sunday I wrote in my Stash Manager's report
that my goal this week was to complete five strippies. Shortly thereafter I hopped over to Pat's blog and read her Stash Report. Pat likes to list what she accomplished the previous week and what her goals are for the next week. Pat is a prolific quilter and usually succeeds in meeting or exceeding her goals.

After reading Pat's report, I realized I had a long moment when I set my goal for the week. No way, no how can I get five strippies done in one week. I'm just not that organized, even though I am now retired. One is far more realistic.

I quilted this one the other day using the Watercourse pantograph from Willow Leaf Studio. As pantographs go, this is perfect for a beginner--fun and forgiving. I fixed the tension problem on my Lizzie, and I was very pleased with it. Tomorrow I'll try to bind this one and load another strippy. I love this pattern!

Love the colors of this quilt! I don't know why I haven't tried a strippy--I have some fabrics that would be great in that design and goodness knows I need to get busy reducing this stash!

Love the Watercourse panto, it reminds me of the Plumage panto. Is it a "looser" type panto? I am looking for one like that, some of mine get kinda dense and I am looking for a generic one that makes the quilt soft and fluffy.

Strippy quilts are such a good stash builder quilt. I love the pink and ted stripes you used and the quilting is awesome. Love the Watercourse panto you used.

Those strippie quilts are really cute and make great donation quilts. Yours is so bright and cheerful! I just made a few kits using the strippie pattern on Mary's blog for people in my Project Linus group.
