I have 2 groups of fabric chosen for the next 16 patch quilts. This is one group. I cut 2.5" strips of my African fabrics when I was cutting pieces to share with 2 friends earlier this year. I will add in black strips too, all to be decided as I work on it.
Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments yesterday. My friend enjoyed reading them too. I had a busy day and didn't respond to the comments like I usually do. I sold one of my embroidery machines to a mother and daughter team and told them I would give them a refresher course whenever they needed it. I spent most of the day with them and they fed me a most wonderful feast for lunch with several desserts. I should have taken photos but I was too busy eating.
