Prep Work

This past week I spent the good part of two days cutting out pieces for Chic Country.

Sadly, I discovered I needed more of the background fabric. A quick search, I found it on Amazon, placed order and it should be here in a few days. Phew!

Update! Fabric came in today’s mail! Back to cutting for me.

Have you ever come up short on fabric but were able to find a match? I’m so pleased I did this time!

How did I do on last week’s To-Do List?

  1. Continue cutting pieces for Chic Country, maybe even some sewing. ✔️ Still have more cutting to do when background fabric arrives by mail.
  2. Continue FMQ friend’s baby/toddler quilts. ✔️Only made a little progress on one quilt.
  3. Enjoy family visiting this weekend. ✔️ We so enjoyed our family coming into town for the weekend! Lovely weather for outdoor activities!

To-Do Tuesday List for this week:

  1. Continue with cutting & piecing Chic Country.
  2. FMQ friend’s quilts.

Linking to To-Do Tuesday and Linky Tuesday.

    this is going to be a real beauty. A few years ago I ran out of a fabric for one of Cheryl’s Mystery quilts. I had to abandon one colour way ,and start another. The blues I did manage to find were not as good as the original. Well done to get a match, and for it to arrive so fast.

    Second comment. Are you using one of the special rulers for cutting? Or a template?

    Your blocks are looking fabulous!

    I run out of background fabric all the time because I just eyeball what I have on hand instead of actually measuring. (Where’s the fun in that, LOL.) Usually, I just make do and make a few blocks with a different background and claim it’s an intentional customization. :) However, if it’s for a commission, then I behave myself and purchase more. So far, I’ve been pretty lucky finding what I need. (Knock on wood…)

    Yay for Amazon saving the day! I’ve had that problem of running out of fabric a lot lately. Mainly because people see one bag made in a particular fabric, and then they want the same bag. Since I usually don’t order more than 1 yard of fabric, I’m often frantically searching online for more fabric. And, more often than not, I can’t get the fabric anymore! That Potions fabric I ended up ordering 6 yards of and have STILL run out! Crazy!

    Love those blocks though, and I can’t wait to see the top assembled! What a relief that you found more background fabric. Phew is right!
