Well, on my design wall this morning are these blocks that I cut out for my Java Jive quilt. I just LOVE them!
I cut several extra ones because I want to make the quilt bigger plus I want to make more than one.
We'll see how it goes.
Here are a couple of the blocks close up.
I can't wait to get to work on this quilt!
You should hop over to Judy's blog to see what everyone else is up to this week.
OK. This quilt is one of the best examples I have come across of a quilt that you REALLY should make a sample block before cutting out the entire quilt.
First of all, there are two different free patterns floating around on the internet. One has you cut out 3 1/2" strips, sew them on to your coffee cup blocks and then cut them down. If you do that, you waste and INCREDIBLE amount of fabric!
The other pattern has you cut out 2 1/2" strips, but when you sew them on, you still have lots of fabric waste.
Anyway, I have decided to kind of do it "my way." This is how the first few blocks are turning out. They're not exactly the size that they're supposed to be, but since you cut sashing for the block in the next step of the quilt, I'll just cut the sashing the size that I need.
Hope you all have a quilty day!
