Strip Along 2021
It's time for another Strip Along! Shop your fabric collection for 2 1/2" strips or see what suits your fancy in the Shop. I've taken an older pattern and Stripologized it for use with the Stripology XL Ruler and GEasy Point Trimmers. Of course, I'll include instructions and demonstrations using regular rulers. I've added sizes and offered border options, too. Save the dates and keep checking this blog post for updates and links.
