SKOW move on

I have been distracted by all sorts of activities-- but am now concentrating on the SKOW SAL group project. I have been wanting to photograph them hanging from the clothesline-- but it has been raining. It is overcast now and windy-- no way am I able to keep them still enough to take the photos! So the floor is the next best thing.

I had got to this stage a while ago.

I had done the blocks and have now joined them in a row.

I was struggling measuring each thin 2"x 61.5"strips and I had a brainwave-- join the 3 together and then measure the correct length and cut it! Why did I not think of that before?

So this is the total so far

So I will get back to more sewing  and hopefully a further move on.

The strips are challenging but they make such a difference where they are on... yours looks fantastic.

I love your MyFT blocks, there is so many interesting changes on your quilt ;o) I also feel that sewing those stripes is a bit nasty...
