Ta-Dah!

Hurray, hurray!  I finished the 96th strip today.  Now I just have to sew them all together, but first I will number them all with pieces of blue painter's tape so that I don't lose the order.





The last pieced strip.




The mountain of slivers from cutting the curvy strips of fabric.






Left-overs from trimming the pieced strips to size.





More left-overs from trimming the sides of the pieced strips to size.  I'm hoping that I can use some of these pieced scraps in a small piece, maybe my SAQA auction piece.

I wish I could show you what the big quilt looks like.  It's all up on my design wall.  I've done a fair amount of arranging and rearranging to get the look I want and I really like it.  

I loved doing this technique and plan do another, but no green the next time.

I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday again.

Wow - you do that skinny-wiggly piecing so well! I'm thinking of doing some curvy strips (not quite as narrow) in my next piece so you may be hearing from me! Looks beautiful and I'm sure the effect of all 96 is stunning!

What you've shown looks intriguing so far. And using up the scraps could be so much fun. Many possibilities for creativity to abound.
