I feel like I spent all my time this week cutting fabric. By Monday morning I was itching to try out my new sewing machine, so I decided to stop playing around with block arrangements and sewed together the top of Cate’s Weighted Blanket. I am in love with how bright and cheery all these fabrics are.
I went with Sonia’s suggestion to add an additional pop of green and will be adding one more with a green and white striped binding. I need to find some flannel for the back and start working on the inside weighted portion, but this quilt is well on it’s way.
Then I pulled out my Tula Pink Birds and the Bees. I ironed my half yard bundle, took a deep breath cut out all the pieces for a king size Dream Weaver quilt. While I had it out, I cut an additional strip for my Many Trips Around the World quilt and a couple more of each for Ellison Lane Quilt’s Scrappy Stash QAL.I even have a small stack leftover of pieces that are slightly larger than a layer cake to use in my king size back. I am pleasantly surprised at how far I will be able stretch this one bundle of fabric!
Today I’m continuing to work my way through my scraps and stash to cut stripes for all three of my planned scrappy quilts. I keep reminding myself of how great sitting down to sew is going to feel when I have all this prep work done.
