Yesterday I got these fabrics in the mail from fabric.com
( they had a sale on kona solids and wide backings- PERFECT)
they are actually kind of BORING! just black and white and white muslin backing....
but that's okay :-)
it's for my husband, not sure if I'll finish it by his birthday in 2 weeks, but I MIGHT, he knows I'm working on it and if I don't finish it on time that's okay too.
This will be the quilt! a BARCODE.
I've mentioned this before here
I printed out the quilt from EQ and then counted how many squares of each black and white in each row and wrote it on the side, I already looked that I should cut each 3 1/2" square.
So I started cutting today
(after I washed them this morning AND ironed them- phew that took a long time)
Here they are all lined up and marked rows with a pin and paper.
I'll start sewing later today or tomorrow,
I think I'm going to iron the seams OPEN, which I rarely do, but here it seems fitting, also to have the black fabrics stay with the black and white with the white...
I also remembered to cut the 93" border length wise so NO seams! hope it's straight :-) and I cut 4 around 100" long so that should be fine.
Wish I could go up and sew more NOW, but I need to go to the kids school and help out the PTA :-)
