I felt like I had a snow day, a free day, to do whatever I wanted to do yesterday. Even though I really had to leave the house once, I treated the rest of the day as free without guilt.
So what did I do? I have wanted to cut my blue fabrics for quite awhile but never could find the length of time I needed to accomplish it. Another thing cancelled for Wednesday so I knew I had 3 free days to tackle this. I started with my batiks and cut 6.5" squares, 2.5" strips and 4.5" strips.
This is the variety I have cut so far. I have cut up 19.5 yards.
This is the group I will start with tomorrow morning.
I had previously cut 68 purple batiks into squares and I will work on turquoise and green next. Then I will start with the non-batiks.
I want to make several quilts out of just 6.5" squares, or maybe I will add a few 9 patches or sawtooth stars in for a little interest.
I made this yellow quilt in 2009 and intended to make more like it in lots of other individual colors so I'm finally getting around to doing it.
It is a celebration of the fabrics more than anything else; no intricate pattern, just relaxing and fun.
