That's what quilters do! Sorta. Sometimes we don't actually complete one quilt project before starting another. They are called UFO UnFinishedObject. And. Yes, I have a few of those.
But this fabric was begging to be cut. I've actually heard my name being called as I walked past my stash door. What else could I do?!
So, I cut the 'focus' fabric to stack on top of the next piece lining up the design...Wait a minute. Quiltbea explains this better than me...http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2250997900081579859okirMC
But aren't they so pretty?!
First borders added...
Remaining borders added. Block complete.
I've been loosely following a pattern and found an error...repeated. Had I been cutting everything at one time, I'd been out of fabric. But I learned a long time ago to just cut enough for one block. Sometimes I've even used Christmas fabrics for a trial block. Eventually I'll have a Christmas quilt top to quilt.
