I knew I didn't have enough of my fat quarter bundle to pull off the whole quilt but at the same time wasn't sure about how much I actually needed. I was worried about cutting too much of any given fabric or what colors I needed to supplement. What I needed to do was get the blocks finished that I was working on and just see where I stood.
So I let my strip sets sit around for a while until the other night when I sat down with a Downton Abbey rerun (I have A LOT to say about that show!!) and sewed up the rest of the blocks I had prepped. Here's an idea of what it will look like. I'm really loving it!
I have 13 blocks finished and am planning on 30 total. I'm not as far along as I'd hoped but I have some new fabrics to add in and I think it's going to turn out really cute.
I plan on backing it with the blue chevron and binding with the red dots!
This is one quilt that I'm hoping to finish for myself in record time. I started it in January and hope to have it all done in the next month or so.
I'm also mulling over an Amy Butler Weekender bag. I got the pattern for Christmas and am currently debating fabric choices: buy something new? or use up my stash? Tough decision.
