As promised, here is an update of what I accomplished this week. It may not look like much, but precision cutting 64 HSTs and 80 squares is no joke!
I have 80 more HSTs to make before the real fun begins!
While I work on those babies, I’m trying to put together my quilting room. I currently work on my dining room table, which isn’t the best spot to use. I have to constantly put everything away and take it out all over again when I’m ready to work. As Virginia Woolf once said, “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.” This has also proven to be true for quilting! Fabric adds up and you need every inch of free space to organize the many pieces involved to make it happen capt’n!
I’ve seen many quitters use a design wall. As I’m approaching the end of making all of the squares for my mom’s quilt, I am realizing that a design wall is going to be a necessity. I’m torn about which route I should take to acquiring one. I’ve seen many DIY roll-up walls and they seem easy enough to make. On my next post I’ll provide all the details on how I made my design wall- with pictures! 🙂
Have a wonderful week everyone!
