On to Another Project!

I have wanted to make a quilt for a long time, but recently I found some fabric that I just loved. It’s so whimsical and a bit retro!! I bought a bunch of fabric without really knowing what I was doing. I didn’t have a pattern, have never quilted, but thought, “Eh…what’s the worst that can happen?” No one would really have to know; unless I blogged about it. So, if I fail, there will be a chance of laughter. 
I will keep you posted on the progress of the quilt. So far, I have the top almost done. I believe I want to add some borders. I have it in my mind, and have even dreamt about how I would create this quilt. So, we’ll see how it works.
It all started when I saw this wheel of fabric sitting on the fabric store’s shelves. Perfect for what had been twirling around in my mind the last few weeks!! I sewed these strips together. There were enough in each wheel to get three blocks of strips sewn! I bought two wheels so I would have enough to have six rectangles of stripes! Very cute idea. Very cute.

Here I have one rectangle block put together. They measure about 15 1/2 inches wide and, well…somewhere around two feet or so long. It took me a while to figure out how I wanted to lay it all out. I had Alyssa and Kimi sitting in the living room watching a movie while I was placing blocks all around the living room floor! Fun Times!!
I bought several packages of these pieces of fabrics. I think they’re something similar to fat quarters, but I’m not sure. I still take offense to the name of the fat quarters. Really? They can’t help it!
And here is one strip done. I will show you the other strips later. They are actually all stacked under this top one. This will no doubt be a busy quilt, but I like it. I’m looking forward to seeing it done! I am also looking forward to sharing my end product with you!!

Be blessed!
