Stitch. Snip. Snip.

I'm only giving you little snippets about this quilt project, because it's not my project--I'm just helping out a bit. For more pictures on what this super cute quilt will look like, go here.  

Here's the basic procedure. Start with lots of strip sets carefully pinned together:


Stitch. (but only 1 1/2 inches each time).


 Snip.


Snip.

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Etc. (you're getting the idea, right?)

Take a look at the view.


Back to work.

Stitch. Snip. Snip. Eventually you will have a pretty pile like this.

  7. I want to come and work at your table with that view (although I doubt I'd get anything done). I'll be really interested to see how this quilt turns out!
