Lone Robin with the third element

Lone Robin 3

Here’s my Lone Robin with the third prompt, stripes or strips. I used a foundation piecing technique that uses newspaper as the tear away foundation.

The first strip was 1.25.” The rest of the strips are either 1″ or 3/4″ I used a short stitch length of 1.5. string 2

Keep adding strips. The ends can be triangles rather than strips.
