It's been a long while since I've cut all the fabric for an entire lap quilt in one go. I've been doing more improv projects where the cutting is mixed in with the piecing. Or I've worked piecemeal on a project. However, the August instructions for the Mosaic Mystery Quilt were to cut up the four main fabrics. (I haven't selected border fabric as I'm waiting to see the quilt top. I'd like to find a coordinating stripe, so any leads on that are greatly appreciated.)
Fabric A is the gold print. Fabric B is the multicolor floral print on light grey background. Fabric C is the turquoise. And the background is the solid black. We've been told that A, B, and C all touch background, but that none of them touch each other. Here's an idea of how those three prints look against the black solid. I think they really pop!
You can take a look at what fabric others are using for their project in the August linkup. With monthly steps for the project, there's still plenty of time to join in and catch up. See all the info on Cheryl's blog at Meadow Mist Designs. Today the next step of instructions are out. I'm excited to start sewing!
Your color scheme is so lovely! I am excited to see what we'll be sewing this month.
Just as soon as all my obligatory projects are done... :-) Happy sewing, Alison!
Love the fabrics! I have to take my time cutting. Too many aches and pains. LOL
Cutting fabric is a good task spread out over time for anyone. Definitely good to take it slow if you're in pain. Thanks for visiting, Shirley.
I love your fabrics!!
Thanks Cheryl. Not my norm, but I'm happy with them and look forward to starting to sew.
