I’ve been busy cutting out squares whenever I’ve had a moment. Takes longer than I expected! I focused on cutting out the appliquéd/fabrics with detailing first. I’m doing three sizes of squares 6″x6″ (6.5×6.5 with seam allowance), 9×9 (9.5×9.5) and 3×3. I’ve cut a few rectangles too, but not sure yet how or if I’ll work these in.
I’ve just laid out what I’ve cut so far – this is not how they will be pieced – to give me an idea of size.
What do you think? As I say, this is not how they’ll be pieced, but it’s coming out a bit better than I was expecting.
I reckon I’m nearly halfway there. Here are my piles. 3x3s are winning out.
Now I’ve cut out all the main designs, I should speed up a bit. I hope. I’m cutting 6×6 squares where I can, then 3×3 with what is left.
