Warm Cool QAL stage 1b

Linda Beth

Over the weekend I played around with my fabric stacks, pulled some new things off my shelves and pulled other pieces away from the stacks, until I had an even 25 "warm" fabrics and 25 "cool" fabrics, intending to work on the baby sized project. In that process, I made the decision to try my hand at 2 simultaneous projects for Jeni's warm cool quilt along, found at her blog, In Color Order. After cutting my 5" squares of the first grouping:



I started in on group #2 - all batiks, aiming for the twin sized version. It's been a long, long time since I have worked on a project using ONLY batiks, but I knew this day would come again! I started cutting down the warm batiks,


though it took longer than I planned due to one heck of a cramp in my right hand (I am not sure whether it was using the weed-whacker or spending an afternoon tearing tickets at the museum, or some combination thereof) that kept me away from my rotary cutter all of Saturday. So the cools have yet to be cut into the appropriately sized squares...



But I aam enjoying just gazing at it all. And so excited about moving forward on this!
