The Quilt Continues...

It is going slowly. I made some progress last Wednesday but put it aside to get a couple bags done for gifts and what not. I am hoping to get another night or two in this week with the quilt.

Most of my time during the day on Wednesday was spent cutting the strips. I was doing my best to be extra careful and precise, I realize this is where the trouble could come in, if my cuts aren't straight I'll be in trouble.

I don't have pics of the work in progress, but here are some pics of the fabrics I chose, I am really hoping they will look ok all put together. I was really trying to mimic the color palette of the original without completely copying it.

Its hard to see it, but I am in love with the light green fabric with the little flowers on it - its so cute!!


I am trying to plan a good night to work exclusively on this project. I am going to make it a point to get more pictures as I work, I'm kicking myself for not getting any of the cutting process itself. It was painstaking, but in an odd way fun.

  3. I think it is going to look great! Cutting straight is a pain in the butt! I can see how it would be hard if you are off even a little on those strips!

  6. You are absolutely amazing to take on a project like this. Seriously! My Mom has made quilts for both of our kids and I know the time and effort that goes into them.

    I am humbled!
