Month 1 – I’ve already changed colors

Yep, didn’t even get into the month and I got stuck on doing blue instead of Purple – I was feeling very patriotic, so I started with blue.

Blue SquaresSo far so good, I have lots and lots of blue squares.

I recently purchased a book “Fat Quarter Style” and I found a pattern in there that Ireally liked so I pulled out my drawer full of blue fabrics and started cutting.

If it was a fat quarter I cut 2 – 9″ squares and 2 – 2 1/2″ strips. If it was larger than that I cut 4 – 9″ squares and 2 – 2 1/2″ strips. Boy did this pile grow. Only a few of the pieces gave me only 1 square – maybe 5 in all.  When I was all done going thru the pile of blue fabric, I counted and had over 100 squares.

pile of blocksWhoa, back that truck up. So as I was going thru and doing the first step (not going to show until the top is done) I only included up to 2 of each color – I still have a ton of squares. But progress. I did, however, run out of the white strips I was using so I did have to order some more white. I didn’t plan on how much “background” fabric I would be going thru doing these projects.

Bad planning on my part.

all ready to go on

But I have my blocks all trimmed up and ready to assemble. My inner boarder is all ready to be added and the outer boarder is ready too.  I feel really good, so far.
