Strides in Quilting

I worked for six hours today, then spent two hours sewing.  While it doesn't feel like I've accomplished much, I have hit two milestones today.

First, I finished cutting the 40 edge pieces! I realize that I will probably need to go and find more fabric (Maybe twice as much, since I want to use this color for the back.)


Then, I finished cutting the pieces for my first flower! Yup, this is flower one of 25.


This quilt is going to be HUGE. Really, really big - but that's good, right?


I started cutting the pieces for the second flower, but my hands started to to hurt.  The rotary cutter is not so good for your wrists, I guess.

Now I'm off to eat veggie lasagna and perhaps some bananas foster afterwards :)  I've done so much today, it feel great!

  1. This confirms for me that quilting is just as hard as it looks, lol. All that cutting! Glad you got so much done.


Hey, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! :) I really appreciate it!
