I am making a quilt and I want to share my progress with you, my readers.
Update 2: Making the Cut
Pattern: Disappearing 9 Patch Colors: Purple, Green, & Orange/Tangerine/Pinks Size: Afghan
Now that I have decided on the pattern I want to make and I have the material in front of me that I want to use, it is time to make “the cut”. The hardest part for me is to make that very first cut in the fabric. I’m always afraid I will make a mistake and ruin or waste my precious material. If I do use it, it will be gone forever. I wonder if I am making the right choice for its use. Once I start on the project and I make that first cut, I am o.k. – good to go. I am excited to see my progress. I look forward to each step and marvel at how it looks.
For this project I am using 5″ squares. I have 4 different purple patterns and 1 green. The last 2 colors are a gerber daisy print and a tangerine. I’ve decided to use both of these pieces twice in each square. I am making 20 – 9 patch squares.
I’ve cut my squares and I’m starting on sewing them together. I’ve got one 9 patch square completed to show you. Back to sewing!
