These ladies are my sisters. Speaking of sisters I have to say that I envy those of you with sisters you can pal around with. I have no sister in laws even though I have 4 brothers and 2 brother in laws. My one and only sister is on the other side of the country. I miss her - so I have adopted my quilting sisters! Love you guys!
Now for the fun. One of the chicks has challenged the rest of us to make a bag like the one it took her the whole weekend to make. We have until our next retreat in October! Pam, I accept your challenge.

Now for the MYSTERY QUILT SAGA!
I cut my strips in half, approximately 22", before sewing into strip sets. This will give you a wider variety of strip sets. And you will get 4 and 1/2 components per strip set. The cutting will be in the next chapter!
So if you are making the
smaller quilt you will need 11 sets of 2 1/2 x 22 or a total of 44 half strips 22 full strips
larger 18 72 half strips 36 full stripsThis will include using the half units and making a pieced unit - which what I did. If you do not want to piece these you will need to make more strips set. Approximately 2 more sets.
That's it. Be back in a few days with the next chapter. Maybe I will have even started my bag!
