What's your process?
When you work on a quilt, do you cut it all out and then start? or do you cut, sew, cut the next thing and then sew?
I usually cut out the whole thing, but for some reason and probably because I was cutting out three quilts at one sitting, I hadn't for the quilt that I decided to work on today.
I cut out all my HST pieced blocks today and then stitched them together.
.....but I hadn't cut out my solids squares. So, had to set everything aside and do that from the strips that I had cut out the other day.
Afterwards, I started laying out the blocks.
This pattern is dizzy-ing.
They are all laid out now, but I am going to sit on it for a little while since the last time I made this I had a whole row sitting in the wrong direction.
I am thinking it looks ok at this point.
Last time I stitched rows and for some reason the whole quilt was a little wonky and that is probably why I haven't quilted it yet.
So this time, I think I am going to sew together 9-patches which should be easy as it is 15 x 15 blocks, so the math works. Hopefully this will help prevent wonkiness.
Ok, back to the sewing machine.
