I was only going to use the provided fabrics to use make a baby size version of In Color Order's Arithmetic Quilt but somehow I didn't have enough fabric.
Her pattern calls for 7 fat quarters (which is exactly what I had) but I still have blanks to be filled in. And the fat quarters weren't exactly straight so I had to use 4" squares instead of the 4.5" ones that the pattern calls for.
I also managed to cut all of the print squares for the Dancing Stars QAL. I still need to pick up the background fabric and get that cut but that will have to wait. I'm thrilled that I still have most of my Noteworthy layer cake after cutting all of this. I'm thinking a dark (maybe even charcoal gray background would make the fun colors really pop...what do you think?
I started cutting the strips for the Scrappy Tripalong Fabric Swap. I decided to dig into my Amy Butler stash. I have several different prints (I think I counted 32?) but they are from all different lines and I haven't found a use for them yet. And by only cutting off a 2.5" strip from each fabric I will still have PLENTY left over for future projects AND I won't have to buy any fabric (yay!). I didn't make it very far in my cutting though since Squeak decided he had had enough. Maybe tonight :)
Linking up to Really Random Thursday.
