Just in case you're wondering, this is what 2,500 2 1/2" squares looks like all sewn together in a random order. In only ONE spot do 2 fabrics the same touch. I'm impressed with the size and that fact. I didn't try to do anything except make sure the fabric didn't touch but it happened in the middle when I was joining the 2 big pieces together. I think I can live with it. Didn't Mel do a great job with the baptist fans????
Now when you are ordering widebacks online, or any fabric for that matter, you really need to pay attention to what you are doing. No talking on the phone, no trying to multi task, because when you don't you get this:
Nice huh?? I THOUGHT I ordered black with dots- but I didn't and since it goes against the bed I told Mel just to use it.
This morning was spent putting the binding on this and cutting 10 1/2" squares for backings out. I'm on my third fabric of 10. I might get 4 or 5 done today and then after dinner -the fun begins. I'm going to start cutting the fabric for my rug frame. Which after almost 2 months I FINALLY have gotten it ready to go. I'm so excited - Carole swears it a huge stash buster and that's just what I need right now. As I cut my backing squares, I'm also trying to cut at least one 2 1/2" strip for future projects.Click on scrap control on Carole's blog on the right.
