Quilt Along – Fabric Cutting

Hello there,

Hope most of them are enjoying their summer break. If not, the lovely monsoon season :-).

I have joined a summer solstice quilt along with Melissa at Happy Quilting.  It is a nice feeling to quilt virtually with lots of other people. Thank you Melissa for hosting :-).

It was little hard to pick the fabrics. Then I had this beautiful half yard bundles from Intrepid Threads I won last year at Melissa’s quilt along.

I will be doing a queen size quilt with 3×3 blocks (28″). Sharper new blade for the rotary cutter is very helpful and my new Omnigrid ruler is awesome!!!!!!!! they are so non slippery than Fiskars rulers. Half yard of each printed fabric was enough to cut all the pieces. I still have some left overs. Background fabric was little tight as Melissa mentioned. I had to buy some more!!!!!!(I know….I made some errors 😀 ).

I selected dark red as the background fabric. Hopefully the printed fabrics will pop up. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Now that the fabrics are all cut up here they are:

I can’t wait to see all these come together. They are so badly waiting to be sewed together in my new Juki TL 2010 machine 🙂 (or is it me?????).

Will catch you next time with my new sewing machine review. Until then be good 🙂
