More Cutting

I finished sewing all of those strips that I'd so carefully laid out, and almost immediately began cutting more strips.

That picture is 25 more blocks, all ready to sew... this project seems so huge now, I'm glad that I'm doing this challenge to keep me on track. Also my hope to have this done soon so I can bind on vacation seems to be helping, but goodness- I have a LOT more of these blocks to do. I can already tell that I don't have enough white fabric and I'm not sure about the blue... but I'm going to use up all that I have before I worry about having to get more. I sat down yesterday and did some figuring, I'll need 81 white squares (white outside border) and 81 blue squares (blue outside border)... when these 25 are sewn, I'll be halfway done with the blues.

At this point, I just want to work on these blocks as much as possible and finish this top! I have a feeling you'll be seeing updates on this quilt pretty often for the next week or so...


  1. Keep at it. It's looking fabulous. I still can't get over your organization! I hate to cut, so I cut, sew, cut, sew to break it up.

  2. You are very organized and I love your blue and white color scheme.

  3. I read about the 2 color quilt challenge (just a few days ago) and I soooooo wish I had the time to jump in to that challenge, too. there are just not enough hours in the day to quilt! your blue and white quilt is going to be striking.


Blondie spoke... now you speak.

It's nice taking turns.

Have a great day!
