Stripping Again

Oh dear, I hope I haven't attracted any unwanted readers with a blog post title like this!  There most certainly won't be any public removal of clothing on this page, so if that's what you're after you best look elsewhere ;-)
What I'm actually referring to is my Bee Strip for The Strip Bees. A few weeks ago I received a gorgeous strip from the lovely Amy.  The idea is that there's six of us in the bee, we each make a strip, then send it on to the next person so that they can add a strip.  And so it goes, until a whole quilt top is eventually returned to each person.  A round Robin if you will. 

I can't show you a full picture of my latest strip, as it's meant to be a surprise for Amy.  But I can show you a few sneak peeks. 

Without revealing too much, what I will say is I took some inspiration from Lucie Summers new book 'Quilt Improv' which is now available on Amazon.  An excellent read and great value I might add!

I had such fun with this strip.  This is the first bee I've joined, and it really has encouraged me to try new things; different techniques, play with colour, and really think and work out of my comfort zone.  If you've not joined a bee before, then I can highly recommend it because apart from all of those things, you get to meet some lovely people! 

I'm linking up today on the page of a very lovely friend, Liz of Dandelion  Daydreams.

If you haven't met Liz already then I suggest you hop over to her blog and take a look around.  She is super talented and I had the pleasure of meeting her in person at FQR and she is even more lovely than you can imagine.  Get yourself over there and of course check out some of the other fabulous blogs taking part in the link up :-)
