Cutting & A Little Piecing FINALLY!

Hello!  :)

Do you remember way back in March when I shared this yummy Pam Kitty Morning fabric with you?


I purchased it to use in my "My Favorite Things" Quilt. I'm making the quilt as part of a quilt-a-long over at the site "Stitch-A-Long". Do you remember? Then I appliqued and stitched up all the blocks for the 5 rows. Here they are to refresh your memory. . .






Well that was as far as I got. I kept meaning to get back to it and work on it but of course I didn't. It's supposed to be finished by the end of October so I figured I'd better get back to working on it. I started by trimming all those blocks down to size.


While I was cutting them down to size I realized that my "sewing" block was missing something.


There was supposed to be 3 mini quilt blocks at the bottom of the block. So I got the fabrics out, cut and sewed them together. Now my "sewing" block is complete!  :)


Next I finally cut most of the fabric for the remainder of the quilt. Here are the strips and blocks . . . 


All those blocks are 2-1/2" or under! Here's another view of all those strips and blocks . . .


I'm hoping to start sewing them all together with those appliqued blocks above tonight during the Friday Night Sew-In.


If all goes as scheduled I'm hoping to get a lot done. Wish me luck!  :)

Until next time . . .
