Playing with Pieces -Strip Sets

The strip sets have been sitting on my cutting table patiently.  Well, not totally patient, I heard them call to me a few times. I have added a few strips.  I even sewed two sections together (lower center, right side on the photo below.)    There is still no plan.  I just wanted to do a layout and see what it looks like "so far." 


The piece of deep blue hand dyed fabric is a single piece that I used to fill the hole. If I sewed it this way, I would have to do some partial seams.  They are not as hard as you might think.  The trick is to make a plan before you start sewing it.  In fact, looking at it, I quickly realized that it would be pretty easy.  At first I thought it would require at least 2 partial seams, but I see now that I can do it with just one.  (Uh, I think....lol.) 

There are some more strip pieces left.  For now they are just two or three strips sewn together.  But I could use them to fill in that bottom left "hole."  However, this isn't that large. I may add some big pieces of whole cloth fabric to make it bigger and add a somewhat "modern" vibe to it.  Ha ha...only time will tell. I can change my mind faster than you can imagine. 

Until Next Time,

This will be an eye catcher no matter what you do. The fabrics are so colorful!

This is going to be another fun one to watch come together. And, I'll take your word on the ease of partial seams LOL.

Looking good!! And I agree - partial seams sound scarier than they actually are - ;))
