On Saturday I'm going to a class with Katy Jones: we're making the pixelated heart from one of the early issues of Quilt Now. It requires over 200 squares of background fabric, and rather than follow the pattern and cut the background from one fabric and the feature fabrics from a further seven, I'm going rainbow scrappy. And bigger than the original. So I need over 400 squares of low volume. I reckon I'm cutting from about 150 different fabrics that's a lot of re-folding, never mind the cutting. I'm looking forward to Saturday and hopefully I'll have a fair chunk of quilt top finished by the evening to share with you. If I finish the cutting, that is.
And whilst I have all that fabric out and unfolded, I might as well cut all the low volume pieces I need for the My Small World quilt. This quilt is an interesting combination of sampler quilt, which I love, and scrappy riot of colour, which I think I'm going to find harder. I pieced together some of the first section tonight.
Is it wrong that I'm already thinking about how to make this quilt bigger?
