Choosing the fabric

For my "Funny Farm" quilt, I have chosen a blue and white color scheme. Today, the fabric is being organized and the cutting will begin. Maybe, if I am lucky, I will even start the sewing. The quilt pattern requires cutting strips of 2 1/2 inches. Author, Karen Snyder, recommends placing a strip of masking tape at the required length on a ruler. This will help cutting each strip the same length.

It is so exciting to start a new quilt. I am not sure how long it will take to complete, but, it is still exciting. The excitement builds as the blocks are completed and combined into rows. What a great feeling to be this creative.

The finizhed block will be 8 inches and the the finished quilt will measure 68 x 94 inches.
