Hello Friends, it is 11.30pm my time on Tuesday, and it looks like I made our 2-Cent Tuesday party in the nick of time! I hope you have had a good day. First off, a new magazine feature in the Summer 2021 issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects! So often browns are used as accent fabrics in blocks. I set out to give the various browns the major role in this quilt design.
And here are my two cents for today: I never cut all my block pieces at one time before sewing. AFTER COMPLETING A TEST BLOCK (always do a test block!), I only cut enough pieces to do the number of blocks in one block colorway. That keep things from being too boring and monotonous for me.
For example, in the brown house quilt above — I would cut enough pieces for one light brown colorway, and sew the pieces together to make the blocks. Then, I cut the second round of fabrics – enough to make blocks of a different colorway, and so forth! I find that I keep my concentration better that way and make fewer mistakes.
And those are my 2-cents for today, now it’s your turn! Happy Quilting, my Friends!
