Yesterday seemed to be a day for more fabric cutting and prepping and it continued into this morning. I would have to say that cutting fabric is not one of my favourite parts of making a quilt. I find it to be quite tedious at times but since it is a very necessary part of quilt making I figured I would get as much done as I could all at once. Now that I have everything prepped I can move onto the fun part - sewing it all back together.
Along with the scraps from yesterday, I finished cutting the black and white parts that I need for the Boy's Britches blocks and I also cut the pieces that I need to make my blue and my yellow star blocks. The star blocks use such tiny pieces of fabric - 1.5" squares and teeny triangles cut from 1" strips. This is a picture of some of the stars I have already made. They are so cute and worth all of the finicky cutting and piecing.
It always seems such a chore to do the cutting in big batches but when I am finished I am always glad that I did it
