For two days in a row I've been tracing templates and hand cutting (scissors) fabric for Bring Me Flowers. You may remember that I've been using a jellyroll of fabric to make this quilt. In addition to the 25 flower blocks there are alternate blocks (4 patches I've already made) that will each need four arcs appliquéd around their sides.
Before I make the last 6 blocks, I took time out to cut the arcs - these are bigger pieces of fabric and I wanted to get them cut and set aside.
Yesterday I then attacked the remaining scraps above(which were dwindling!) to cut the remaining blocks. WHEW! I barely had enough fabric left. In fact I dug through my little table trash bucket, using every little snippet. I now have kits ready to make the last 6 blocks.
There's still plenty of work left on this quilt, but I feel good having done all the cutting.
We had a lovely Spring walk late yesterday. We're enjoying temps in the mid 50's - nothing like the poor folks up in the Northeast USA.
Today I'll be hand sewing some of these little kits! Enjoy your day!
