It took me a day to prep all the fabric to make enough blocks for 2 #QuiltsForVegas quilts. I am making the blocks requested by the Las Vegas MQG, so for all the details you need to participate, please visit the #QuiltForVegas post. To give a bit of context, though, I needed 10 fat quarters for the colors and just under 3 1/4 yards of white to piece all the blocks.
After all the fabric prep, it was 2 days of chain piecing. Lots and lots of chain piecing.
It was relief, more than excitement, that I felt after sewing the last seam on 58 quarter log cabin blocks. Of course, I still had the last 58 seams to iron…
I knew exactly where I was headed with the first quilt top after collaborating with Miss A and Mr. L.
It’s pretty magical to sew the blocks together!
I decided to change up the plan just a bit for the second quilt top and did my best to distribute the remaining blocks / colors in a pleasing arrangement.
My plan for this week will be to finish piecing the second quilt top and see how far I can get toward quilting and finishing the quilts.
