Learning to Strip

I've been a wee bit obsessed with on-line quilting bee's.  It was so fun to meet new people and to sew different blocks.  One result is piles of blocks just waiting to be made into quilt-top and eventually quilts.

Because of some commitments to our family budget I decided to scale WAY back on my mailing costs and my wonderful fella has allowed me to stay in one group. To keep feeling like I'm creative with others.

So, I'm learning to strip. . . strip quilt. 
And I'm not the only one!

This is the group of us are taking on this different kind of project:

Shelley with no blog but go check out her flickr photos
Mary of Fairly Merry

We'll each be be making a row of blocks a "strip" for each other. 

There are some fun color combos and requirements.

Here's a my foundation row. . .
