Strata's ALL over the place!

I started cutting strips for the Strips and curves quilt and actually got two strata's assembled. It took me all day because I did things "my" way. I got all the strips cut and one strata madde and then discovered I had lost a couple strips for the second strata. After looking ALL over the house for two hours, in which time I got sidetracked WAY too many times, I discovered the lost strip had been sewn into the first strata. So then I had to ripstitch.Lol.

I went to cut the strips out for the second set and discovered I need another black and white. Not a problem I think as I have a B&%% load of fabric. But unbelievably I have not one with the right amount of contrast. Lol. So tomorrow I am off to the fabric store. I also decided to cut my strips at 1 1/2 inches even though the directions said for a smaller quilt they should be cut at 1 inch. But I just didnt like the look of one inch. This is when I am thunking myself in the head again for not taking the class with Jody when I had the chance. My customer isnt going to be dissapointed if the quilt is bigger so I know that will be o.k.

There was also progress made on the bargello. I am on row 15 of 47! This is seriously the most intense quilt I have ever made. Honestly though now that I have the first few strips sewn and all the stratas for this made I am loving it!

It would be wonderful if I could share a picture as it is really turning out beautiful but no such luck. I did find the camera only to find it was missing the card. How does that happen? Very frustrating.........
