I decided to start a quilt!
Over the last few weeks I had gathered the material to make a quilt that had caught my eye on display at the lqs. It is a Moda pattern called 'Sweet' (you can see ithere). It appealed to me because it was kind of vintage-y and the colors were very bright.
I cut a bunch of strips and I it really doesn't seem like I have made much of a dent. I might have enough for six across and seven long!
I think the hardest part, so far, is cutting into the fabric. I didn't have a problem with cutting up the fabric in the kit for my class, because it was purchased with a particular goal in mind. But, just cutting into fabric that I have already changed my mind about once, was hard.
I started out washing and pressing all the fq's, and then I washed some other fabric, just to fill up a load in the washer doncha' know... Then, I thought I should look through some other fabric and see if I had any others that coordinated (even though I had forty coordinating prints already!)
Finally, I just told myself to get started and I stacked up six fq's and started cutting! After that, it was easier.
Maybe I should just buy kits!
