Fabric cutting extravaganza

made by Bobbi Porter and photo is used with her permission

Do you remember this quilt block from my quilting class? I found the fabric I am going to use for it and I am so excited!


It will be very girly, but I'm making it for a baby girl, so it's perfect.

This is the second quilt I am making. Can you believe that she made this from the fabric pictured below???




The pink fabric (above) is what I chose for my project. Now that I look at it, I'm not sure if I am going to give it to Luke's sister, it doesn't have enough purple in it.



Thursday night I had a fabric cutting bonanza. Cutting the fabric for this quilt was a lot harder than others. I had to lay six identical pieces of fabric on top of one another, pin it, and cut precisely using a triangle ruler. Thank god I had a sharp rotary blade!


Since I cut through six identical layers I ended up with six identical pieces. I had some fun laying the pieces on my mat and seeing all the fun variations I could do with the blocks. Not sure if I am excited or stressed when it comes to sewing this up...
