I'm still working on cleaning and organizing my studio, so sewing is on hold for a bit longer, but I took a break to finish doing my cutting for the Starburst Quilt Along. I had the fat quarters cut, but needed to cut all of the background fabric. I'm using Kona white. I can't believe I just cut up more than 7 yards of white fabric all in one evening. It doesn't look like that much here, does it? I bought 8 yards, and I have less than one left, so it must be true. I guess you can't see how tall some of these stacks are.donated by Riley Blake to Phoenix Quilts. Julie said I could hang onto it, so I've been hoarding this fabric for a few months, just waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it. I think this is it!
I'm changing things up a bit. I'm doing the 40" blocks, but I'm adding additional borders made from more half square triangles, and I'm making them into four separate quilts. I'll be donating these to Phoenix Quilts when they are all done. Here's the layout I'm planning so you can see how it's going to work. Sorry it's blurry.
I'm linking up with Happy Quilting and the Starburst Quilt Along today.
Question: What is the proper way to spell quilt along? Quilt-a-long? Quilt a long? I can't decide what looks right to me. Any thoughts?
