Day 1 of Quilting.
Well today went good I think. I am making a quilt from another blog on here. Crazy Mom Quilts. It is her Flea Market Fancy quilt. I have sewed many things in the past, but this will be my first quilt. Back in the spring I finally chose all my fat quarters and then my mother-in-law found a pattern that is great. Since Thanksgiving break is fast approaching I thought this would be a good time.
So today I sat down and cut all my fabric pieces. Things were going well. I was cutting nice 3.5" pieces and then going back and making my smaller cuts. I had done about 4 sets when I came to a fat quarter that wasn't 22" long! UGH frustrating. My color scheme is mostly purple, yes I know, with a few greens. Guess what color was short almost each time? Yup the greens. But no fear I will make it work.
With that said all the pieces are cut. Right now I have enough to make 26 blocks. The pattern is for 20 blocks so I can play around with my colors and layouts. The rest of the week will be devoted to piecing and making my quilt top. ;o)
Here are some pictures of what I have done today.
Wish me luck!
Before I started my cutting today.
This is my first block that is finally cut.
All done! Well for today that is. Wednesday I will begin putting it together, with some help of course.
