    I finally got to visit a LQS in Lexington NC this Saturday. It is called Quilting Quest. They also have a web site. I would recommend this shop to everyone. Lynn the owner is such a nice lady and very helpful. I will most certainly be going back again. They are having UFO night next Friday evening. The fabric is very reasonably priced. Lynn is also having a sale next weekend so be sure to visit if you can get down that way. I also went to JoAnn fabric this afternoon to purchase something so I too can be a stripper.

    These are the fabrics from Quilting Quest. The cutting grid is from Joann trip

    This is what I am making from the fabric I got at Quilting Quest. It is going to be a fence rail

    This is from my stripping. The yellow flower fabric in background is for another quilt that I need to finish. It is from Joann trip. The strips are longer than shown here. they are still folded up.

    Hey--I just bought fabric from her on ebay last night! What a coincidence. Same store name--same owner's name...

    Beautiful start to a great quilt!

    A stripper is one who cuts strips of fabric to be used in quilt designs. Example: for the fence rail you need lots of strips sewn together first and then cut into squares. It also makes for a good joke to tell someone that you are a striper, just watch their eyes. Lynn used this one on me Saturday in her shop.

    I ordered that cutter from nancysnotions.com, can't wait for it to come so I too can become a "stripper". Another good one for my GKs, especially the teens.

    I have a book that states that you can use as many strips as you like as long as you have a square. The possibilites are endless.

    Beautiful fabrics!
    I believe the stripper she is talking about is the ruler with the slots you can cut strips with.

    Thanks, it actually has 5 colors. I really wanted to make one with purples. The friend I had with me found the multicolor fabric and we went from there. I too can't wait to see this one finished to see what it will actually look like.

    I have that strip ruler and have not used it yet. Seeing your strips I think I will have to give it a try. Love your colors.

    Love your color choices, so cheerful! Love brights though I have tons of civil war fabrics, I guess I like all spectrums.
