Last week was spent cutting and prepping all the pieces for Prairie Star. I have done a couple of Judy Neimeyer quilts in the past, but nothing this complicated.
|Bagged and ready to start.|
All of the paper piecing units are cut apart and seperated into six different bags. There are also plastic cutting templates to prepare and paper pieces for cutting. All of the fabrics are pre-cut and put with its unit in the proper bag. The cutting took awhile, as you have to make sure you are cutting the right unit for the right fabric. There are 14 different fabrics in this quilt.
Now that the cutting is complete, I am getting started on the first unit, which is actually bag #3. This quilt will definately take some time and will stretch my quilting skills. Check in and see my progress.
On the longarm this week will be the charity quilts that were completed earlier this month. I will be self-binding them to save a bit of time. They will be turned in at our September 14 Guild meeting.
I have a busy week ahead of me and will be attending Rusty Barn Quilt and Sewing show later this week. Have a shopping list and which will include some additions to my stash for future projects. So glad events are back! Happy Sewing!
