|Strip Set--100% from my stash!|
Thanksgiving morning, I woke up early and couldn't get to the studio fast enough to start sewing these quilts. It was pedal to the metal, as I started assembling the strip sets, which went surprisingly fast! In fact, I had all the strip sets sewn, cut and all the white framed blocks completed by the end of Thanksgiving Day. Friday, I completed the second set of blocks and started to assemble the quilt tops. Sunday, I found 2 large pieces of fabric in my stash that were just barely big enough for my backing and went to work layering and pinning in preparation for the quilting stage...which is where I took a bit of a break as my vacation was over...

Once the binding was complete---I needed a quilt name so I could prep the labels. I thought it would be fun to play off the original quilt title "Roller Rink" and since these were baby quilt sized...I changed it to "Stroller Rink." I also wanted a fun location photograph the finished quilts. We've been having some rainy, dreary days and I really wanted a bright cheery background. I thought it might be fun to head to a local playground and the first pass by it was full of kids. So we ran our errands and stopped by once more to find an empty park to drape the quilts along the playground for a fun photo shoot!
