Every so often my friend Terry Wojciehowski and I get together for a sewing weekend. Earlier this year, we were meeting once a month, taking turns at each other's houses, but then life got hectic and we got off track. So this weekend was a treat!
I've been getting some of the Strip Club kits from Cozy Quilt Shop in El Cajon CA. Every month, Daniela Stout, owner of Cozy, designs a quilt using 2-1/2" strips and crowds of women come into the store on the second Saturday to see the new pattern (I believe they get the pattern for free if they come to the shop for the Strip Club gathering), and to buy the strips and additional fabrics, if desired, to make the quilt. I taught at Cozy Quilts in March and liked the current month's pattern a lot!
The name of this pattern was "Shine" and, as you can see from the color illustration, the strip set was very bright, multicolored and fun! I purchased the strip sets and the pattern, deciding to pull the white background fabric from my stash and to decide on border fabrics after I made the blocks.
Some setting triangles were also needed; those will also get "star parts" sewn onto them.
