It's Wednesday so it must be time to play
Workshop in Progress!
I have been collecting fabric for a couple of weeks for a new quilt.
I went to my LQS, my not so LQS,
and to large fabric chain store.
Large fabric chain store shall go un-named for reasons sited below.
but they had some things I don't see other places,
so I gave it a whirl.
I bought quarter yards.
I never have a plan. I just jump in.
I started cutting up all those lovely quarter yards into 4 1/2" squares.
That should work right? 9" is a quarter yard . . .
My LQS always cut a little extra . . .
Their fabric was fine.
It was rather large fabric chain store that disappointed.
Most of the fabric was cut at 8" and not very straightly!
But . . . this could work for me. I cut the leftover from the quarters at 4 1/2" x 2 1/2"
and then pieced them into the squares.
Not sure what I'm going to do next, but it's all cut and ready to be something.
How do you approach a new project?
Do you plan it all out and know exactly where you are going?
Or do you just jump into a whirl of cutting and sewing and see what happens?
Today, Cheryl asked us what we do for thread storage.
I try to keep same colors together.
Some are in the sewing box right behind it.
I don't keep the spool and the bobbin together.
So that's what's cooking today.
What are you working on today?
