Terrible Blogger

I’ve been a terrible blogger this month.  I just realized I’ve posted nothing.  Have mostly been working and sewing on the Strip Twist, trying to get it ready to send to my sister. Finished the binding last night and will label it and wash it today. As a break from the Strip Twist, on the Saturday of International Quilting Day I tried the Mystery Quilt on a facebook page.  It was a jelly roll race type and I used up a bunch of the strips I was tired of sewing with from the Strip Twist. This is the end product so far. It was a lot of fun to just sew, not worrying over light vs dark or matching anything.  In hindsight, I would have ironed more. The video I watched on the Jelly Roll Race from Youtube said to just go for it and not worry about ironing between rows, but I have some mini-volcano's that might have been avoided if I’d ironed (I think).
