I started something new!
I am probably the last one to show my "project start" for
started up. But I'm "all in" never-the-less.
I had a hard time deciding between Carol's large version of the quilt
or Kelly's cute little version. I have to be honest... reading the part of how
many 1 1/2" pieces made my brow lift!
So I looked at the cutting instructions for Carols' Simple Things quilt and thought that the larger one would actually be a little easier/quicker for me.
I wanted to use my vintage sheet collection for it but in the end I picked my charm packs of Dream On and a small mix of vintage sheets.
And although I am going super size, I stayed with the lighter, brighter colors Kelly at Charming Chatter did hers in and I plan to somehow figure out how to make the border of her smaller quilt on the large quilt.
So, maybe it wasn't the easier route after all.
I also decided to make the flying geese units my preferred way ...
you know, the easy way! I'm guessing that it won't be any easier than
the way they have instructed but it's my plan and I'm stickin' to it!
So, you can see that once I committed to the cutting..
I'm hummin' right along now. I'll be caught up with the rest of the group
I also got things prepped for my FQS BOM Block 1.
It's just a happy block. I was kind of thinking of making a second block of each block and
have two quilts when I'm done.
I'll have to come back tomorrow to show you the pictures of my weekend projects.
Those photos were blurry.
