I Like Fabric Puzzles

Actually, I like various types of puzzles and do a few online
of photos, numbers, and words.
Maybe that's why I enjoy puzzling together
Free Style Cobblestone blocks 
(odd  shaped blocks) 
of fabric like these created from hand dyed fabric
 adding black coping strips.
Any guesses as to why they are called "coping" strips?

Change Purses To Berlin

I'm working on an order for 5 change purses.
The customer requested bright colors
and no verses since the  Berlin recipients speak German.
I plan to make 6 since it is time
 to replace mine that I use daily as well. 
It's been awhile since  I created  change purses.

I like Yellow

As a teen, my room was yellow,
Yellow was one of the colors for my wedding,
(not sure why I combined that with peach...hmm)
and since Hubby's favorite color is yellow,
now our bedroom is yellow.
Yellow is a bold color which is why I like it
contrasting with the blue re purposed strips in this piece
which I posted about here.
Machine quilting has begun.

Repurposing Blue 6 Inch Strips

 I'd like to write "Using Up" Blue 6 inch strips
but that's not how it works.
Instead, I've begun piecing this piece 
that I sketched in my journal recently 
"re purposing blue 6 inch strips".
These strips are left overs or plan aheads 
as I prefer, to "Reflecting Glory".
Skinny straight strips are a wee bit of a stretch for me so
suggestions for keeping them straight are appreciated.
