I totally got strip piecing!
I was also reading an old magazine. I think it was American Quilter where I learned about all kinds of quilt styles. Gwen Marston wrote for them. I really liked the old strippies!
It is documented in this and this post.
This has been kind of a stripping away of layers to discover who this quilter is and also the why of what I do now. Kinda revealing, isn't it?
