Scrappy Quilt – Neutral Background – Day 4

Posted on: May 26th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

Slow progress…. Yesterday was Saturday, and I wanted to let my daughter sleep in a bit.  So, I ended up doing the dishes and baking some muffins.  Her bedroom is right next to my sewing area. Eventually, I did get my neutral strips sewn together and cross cut into 2.5″ sets. Experimented with a few […]

Spent the day yesterday washing and ironing all the new fabrics… Not very exciting, but satisfying.  And I began cutting strips.  2.5″ for the scrappy squares and 3″ for any hst’s. This quilt is planning on being 96″ x 96″…. Sew a finished square of 2″ is quite small…. I’m a bit scared! I am […]
