Cutting fabric to start a new project is my least favorite step in the quilt making process. It is always heavily outweighed by the fact that I am excited to get to make something (!!), but it’s still the part of the process I like the least. I just find the time it takes to be tedious. As a related aside, it is for this very reason I’m not a big chain piecer – I like to get up and move between steps a bit, so I’ll work on a set of units at a time as I am piecing.
I have recently been listening to a lot of different podcasts, and I have found that listening to them really helps me when I am going through the cutting stage for a quilt.
I’m happy to say that the Bokeh quilt fabric cutting is complete (while educating myself through several new episodes of Code Switch), so now it’s on to the fun of piecing. Well, after a short distraction that I’ll tell you about later this week: first, I want to cross off one more of my 2020 goals. Wish me luck!
This last photograph really shows the texture in the Northcott Fabrics Toscana White Wash 9030-10. I am also using Dublin Gray 9040-92, Dublin Clearwater 9040-61, Dublin Bahama Breeze 9040-63, and Dublin Peacock 9040-68.
Quick reminder: today is the last day of the Pistils & Pollen digital quilt pattern sale!
What are you working on this week?
