|The night before the race|
She cut her strips from a large stash of red fabrics.
Gwen, who had an all batik Jellyroll.
Jan on the left who cut her strips 3 inches. Jan was also our referee and had a whistle to keep us in line.
Kathy is hiding behind her all batik Jelly roll. Kathy is my hero, she taught me to paper piece, which was no small challenge
Suzie , on the right, used all batiks and I think she cut them from her stash. Just a note here about Suzie and Maryann; they are sisters. This fact somehow escaped me until I was looking at them one night at our friendship block group and I noticed how much the resembled one another. This was probably during the second year Suzie was sewing with us. I don't know why they kept this a secret from me. Everyone else knew they were sisters. Do you see the resemblance?
