Today was dedicated to cutting the fabric for my current project, two boy quilts. More than 3.5 hours of cutting, pretty exhausting but it's nice to get it done and move onto the sewing stage quickly.
It took quite a bit of time trying to come up with satisfying layouts. The baby quilt - please imagine blue borders on top and bottom, too, my table is too small.
And the toddler quilt. I like it but might change it a little, mixing the prints a bit more as I did on the baby quilt. We'll see. I will definitely swap the two misplaced white trains on the left for blue ones. Rather glad I took this pic and spotted the mistake before sewing!
The only sewing this weekend: assembling the 6 cm wide binding, seven measly seams. But it's all pressed and folded and wound up, already, 4.4 metres and 6.6 metres, respectively.
I'm prepared for the next stage, the rows are compiled into numbered stacks, and I might sew a couple of them together in the evenings should I find the time.
An awesome weekend full of laughter, smiles, and fun. How did you spend yours?
