Strip to high heaven

I started this beauty nearly 5 months ago. I'd hate to admit it but I purchased the fabric 10 months ago! I saw lots of strip quilts floating around and thought "oh that's so quick and easy!" Easy? Yes. Quick? No.
There's something about piecing cool designs together that makes quilting fun. Running straight strip around another straight strip continually isn't as much fun. It's not a really time consuming task but its boring.
I kept sewing 2 sets of layers on and then I'd stop...for weeks! Finally I pushed through and finished it.
I'm going to go back to what I like. :)

Make this changing mat! Super easy!

This is one of the fastest, easiest tutorials I've tried! I made the first one in under 2 hours (with toddler distraction!) and the second one in an hour, if that! Give it a try!

Your Voice Counts Day!

Did you have a wonderful, empowering birth experience? Did you have a traumatic birth experience that made you feel hurt and confused? Stand up and tell somebody! On Thursday, November 22nd (Thanksgiving) join us in mailing letters to hospital administrators, birth center directors, and other birth workers to tell our stories. How will hospitals and birth workers know how they're doing if we don't tell them? Whether your birth happened sixty minutes ago, sixty days ago, or sixty years ago, your experie...nce matters. We cannot be ignored if we unite and flood these establishments with letters at the same time. Stand up and be counted on Your Voice Counts Day.!/events/415706168477663/
