Summer Solstice Quiltalong - Cutting

Time for part two - cutting fabric!

The Summer Solstice Quiltalong is happening over at Happy Quilting, and I'm off to a good start! My cutting space was set up today, so I got right to it. It was quick and easy for me, since I'm just making one big block.

And that's it for two weeks we'll start the sewing!

Have fun!

Summer Solstice Quiltalong - Choosing Fabric

Summer is here! With summer, comes lots of sewing time...and I'm joining in on my second online quilt-a-long (QAL).

The fun is happening over at Happy Quilting, this link will take you to the Intro post that will have links to the rest as they come up. Come join in!

 There are so many choices for this project, five different block sizes, and layout options to make a mini to king size quilt, wow! The pace is pretty easy too...with new instructions coming out every other week.

I'm going to make a single block, in the 32" size, with borders it will finish about 38"...which should look great on the partial wall that you see as you enter my house, awesome!

I'm going with an aqua/blue colorway, with a white background...the living room needs some brightening, and this will help!

There are going to be prizes along the way for participation...and finished quilts will be eligible for some swanky grand prizes in September, woo hoo!

Next up, cutting instructions!

Happy Creating!
