I worked on steps 1, 2 & 3 today and discovered that my strips are only 36 inches (or less) long. I had to improvise in the cutting. Most of my colours match but the fabrics are not the same. I'll hold my photos for later.
Between church services today [instead of my Sunday afternoon nap] I got my fabrics organized. Leftover worm, and fat quarters [ same fabrics] . Just finished cutting all the A,B,and C's. Tomorrow I'll cut the background. Will have to see about sashing , borders and binding. I still have material left if it works. The material is the aqua tera from connecting threads. I'm glad to get started on this. Next I have to figure out getting pictures into computor and posted. One area I am a little chalenged..lol
I love your fabrics. My friend got mine cut so I am ready for step 3 now.
Thank you Barb.
I have certainly enjoyed seeing everyone's Step # 3 coming together and am really looking forward to each weeks steps to see how this MQ starts to take shape! This is the most fun I've had putting a quilt top together in a long time! Here's my progress, so far!
Carolyn, very pretty
After looking at all the beautiful bright colors in everyone's MQ5, mine just looks so boring. I just might have to start another one...it's so boring looking that I don't even want to post a picture of it. I am so disappointed with the colors that were in my jelly roll. I will finish this and use it for a charity quilt, if nothing else, but I must do one with bright colors to be satisfied.
Karla, mine aren't bright, you might be surprised at the out come
I am going to finish it and give it a chance. It's not the first time I was disappointed at the start of quilt but liked it when it was finished. It's just that right now, it looks so blah. But my darkest and/or brightest pieces are "A" pieces, so maybe I'll change my mind once they get worked into the picture.
Love your colors; this is going to be beautiful, Carolyn.
Hubby put a TV in my sewing room, could sit and finish step 5 with some backgroound noise. Interesting how the batiks change once they are cut. The colors change in the small pieces. Here they are.
Very pretty fabrics Carolyn. Good job :)
