She loves to make scrappy quilts, and has decided to begin making a “99 Bottles” Quilt (62” x 78”) that she found in the Scraptherapy Scraps Plus One book by Joan Ford.
It calls for 2460 1-inch squares of one off-white fabric. Then, there will be an additional 1968 1-inch squares of print fabrics that she plans to get by cutting 492 of her 2-inch squares into quarters. Then, there will be some 31 2”x14” strips and 40 2”x2.5” rectangles that will need to be cut to go with them.
She’ll have to sew things together as she goes to keep all of the print fabrics together (mini 9-patch blocks), but I think she’s just getting to be a real cut up, don’t you?
Anyone else enjoy this kind of cutting up?
