I pressed all of my strip sets yesterday evening. Don't they look so fun in all that bold Bella Solid goodness!!! And I was so excited, and it wasn't to late (insert wink) , so I headed right to the cutting mat and starting sub-cutting all of my strip sets.
Then this morning, instead of exercising (because sewing is way more fun!!!) I sewed all of my sub-cut strip sets into giant pieced rows. Don't they just look so great hanging off the ironing board. There are 5 sizes and I just love seeing the variation of small to large. My kids say they look just like their Lego's all pieced into a giant wall. And I have to say, they do indeed make me smile, I mean, how could you not smile at all of the piecing goodness :)
So now, it is time to turn these pieced rows into blocks. Here is where I am crossing my fingers that the blocks I create will look similar to the concept design that is floating around in my head ;) It is always fun (and a bit scary) when I piece without a pattern or a set plan. I mean, there is a basic guidance plan but this project it is still relying a lot on "make it up as you go". Wish me luck!! 3 weeks to get this one pieced, quilted, and bound, but hey, I always work best with a deadline ;)
I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
