I bought a pattern last year at my guilds quilt show... or was it the year before? Anyhoo, I sat down and went through the pattern on Friday, figuring out what I needed.
This morning I got up at 6am to ride before the heat kicked in and when I came home I stood for quite a few hours prepping all the blocks. I had a lot of fabric already cut and sorted into bags to make it easy when I want stuff for projects.
So most of it was cross cutting and making sure I didn't have the same fabrics in each bag. So now I have 12 blocks ready to piece... well not quite, I will have to mark my seam allowance first. But that's something i do while I sit in front of the TV each evening. Then I can grab a bag and go!
I will be hand piecing the blocks and then applique and embroider them. Not sure who will receive this quilt but I shall enjoy making it... will be a long term project, I still have to keep on piecing my double wedding ring!
