Quilt Along - Cutting

As previously mentioned, I am participating in a Quilt Along organized by Jill at Create.Craft.Love and Sarah at Becoming Martha. If you're interested in the details, click here:

This week, we started cutting. I have never been so grateful for a rotary cutter than I was as I cut the pieces for this quilt. I sure hope people are being honest when they say that cutting is the worst part. It took a lot of time to cut all the pieces, but once they were cut, I got to have a bit of fun figuring out what order I want them sewn in. Here they are, laid out how they will be sewn together (except I had to fold them and overlap them to get them all to fit on my table):

My borders and sashing are green. The patterned blocks are from Riley Blake's Dress Up Days collection. There is a small orange piece between each block and the back will be purple. Next week, we start sewing, so wish me luck!

  1. Hi! Thank you for linking this to my What Are You Doing? Wednesday Blog Hop!
    I wonder how this project is going to turn out. I will keep following up!

    1. Thanks Sara! Luckily it is a quilt along so I don't have to figure it out on my own. I've never pieced a quilt before, so it's a bit intimidating! I'll be back for next Wednesday's Blog Hop!


Comments are swell!
