I have had a bit slower start to making the queen size version of Night Garden for my sister- and brother-in-law this year than I had envisioned. I took my time writing the pattern and bonus quilt patterns, and at the end of January I was finally ready to cut the fabric. I’ve just been so busy in the studio and on the blog with other projects that I haven’t had time to share about the fabric preparation until today!
Over 2 days, I cut all the fabric. For a queen size quilt that only uses 2 fabrics, there were a lot of steps, and I wanted to take my time to make sure I did it all correctly. I’m sort of bad at following my own pattern directions so I really went s-l-o-w-l-y and hooray, it all worked out great!
I’m using Kona Cotton in Royal and Oyster, and I will be using 50wt Aurifil 2740 (Dark Cobalt) to piece the quilt since the majority of the quilt top is Kona Royal.
Do you like to cut all of your fabric before starting to sew a quilt?
