Well I managed to get three more blocks done of the Farmer’s Daughter Sampler Quilt (FDSQ). Thank goodness I’m making progress. I feel good about them too. I really like the reproduction fabric that was included in the BOM.
Today I worked with some triangles and some other shaped blocks which were interesting to piece together with the template cutting. I sure have to work on cutting out my fabric based on the template a little bit straighter.
The templates have been a pain – as I mentioned before. I thought about many different ways to work with the templates.
1. I could have traced all the template (100 plus) on template plastic, then traced them all out on fabric then cut them. That seemed like an even longer process and I was already dreading cutting out all those templates.
2. I could have traced all the templates on freezer paper so I could iron them on the fabric and rotary cut around each shape. This one I was really leaning towards and might go to sometime during the process – especially if my cutting gets worse.
What cutting/tracing process are you using? Or what would you suggest?
110 blocks left – 3 block finished = 107 to go.
