I finally had a chance to start to sew. I decided I was going to get as many HST ready to sew because I want mine to be kind of scrappy within each quadrant.
This is what I have prepped so far. I sew some, then cut my squares in half, then trim. I think I need some more solids so I ordered a black, a color called mango, a green called leaf, and a brown called weathered teak. I hope it gives it lots of variety.
These are the trimmings from the pile above. I am kind of champing at the bit to be able to put a few blocks together. I always marvel at the people who make one quilt at a time. Cutting all of the fabric and then just sewing. I am too impatient I always want to sew. I finally broke down and put together a 1/4 block to see how it looked.
I am kind of loving it. One down I think if I calculated correctly 143 more to go.
