It sure did take me awhile to get done with cutting all the pieces for Primary Colors even with the AccuQuilt Dies. I was just slow and need to find a low table that I can sit at instead of standing up with this bad hip that aches come and go in it.
These are the pieces left to sew into the small units before all are made into larger units. Stitching these will go quickly as they can all be chain pieces and then pressed and made into 4 patch units.
This much is leftover from 22 fat quarters that I used to cut up for the quilt – I will get these cut up into useable scraps over the weekend I hope and put away into the scrap boxes. I had two more fat quarters that I used but there were big pieces of those left so they will get put away with the remaining bundle. Before I cut these I will check and see if any can be used in the bird quilt – I bet I can use some of them but don’t think they are big enough for the mini baskets.
These are the pieces already sewed.
The bottom of Handful of Scraps has the 3 rows of neutrals attached to the bottom and next I need to get more thread basted and then start making the 3 rows for the tops. Linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict today.
I have not forgotten the birds and will get back to work on Bird Brain one day – for now it sits in the little treasure chest that Melanie got me for Mother’s Day along with fabric that I am using in it.
Also my little baskets – I have a stack of squares on the cutting table ready to work on as well – just have to get them cut out!
The marinara sauce will wait for today – I was going to put it in the crock pot last night but after checking the tomatoes I decided they could wait one more day.
