So remember how I posted about all of the fun Quilt-Alongs I have coming my way . . . We'll between going here and there to teach this month (more on that soon) I have been trying to squeeze in some cutting so I will be ready for all of these to start :)
I mentioned earlier that I decided for the Splendid Sampler to do monochromatic blocks in a rainbow layout. The fun thing about that is I can just pull open the appropriate color drawer for each new block and cut as I go ;) I love having my scraps sorted by color, this rainbow just makes me smile :)
For the All In A Row "Row Along" I finally managed to narrow my row choices down to 6 and then cut some additional pieces for the border prints. I have all my pieces cut and am ready to start Rowing Along ;) I am so excited to be making a Christmas Quilt using Winterberry by Kate and Birdie for Moda. I have had a Fat Eighth stashed away for a while now and it is going to be just perfect for this festive row quilt!!!
For the Bloom Sew Along, I decided to do something a little different and am using this fun new line called Dot and Dash by Doodlebug Designs for Riley Blake. I am making 3 blocks for my "guest blogging day" and have them all cut out. I can't wait to see this one come together. So fun!!!
And finally, I started getting all of the print fabrics cut for my Crossroads Quilt Along. Aren't those colors just gorgeous!!! I love the soft tones of Fig Tree Quilts!! I still have to cut the red chain block pieces, and then the background instructions are sent with each block. But I feel like I have a really good start ;)
So that is what I have been up to . . . how about you?? Any marathon cutting sessions as of late getting ready for new 2016 projects ;)
I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
