The best sort of sewing ... free and easy. The strips are cut for you. Chop them up a bit more if you fancy, make little piles of fabric ... roughly white, blue and pink. Rummage through stash for long-abandoned manly shirts with frayed collars to add into the mix and make things completely one's own. Feel chuffed that knew they would come in handy one day. Hurrah!
Let's piece. Piece, piece, piece. First one, pink flowery ... next one, blue stripey. Ooh what next? How I love to piece! It's my favourite bit of the quilting process.
