54

54 squares...



Yesterday I ironed all fabrics and cut out 54 squares. It wasn't so bad.....the squares are large. I have a rotery cuter but not a cutting mat or ruler so I didn't layer cut. I used my paper cutter to make a perfect square and traced it on the back of the fabric and cut each one at a time. I am some what excited about doing this quilt. I hope to decided on a layout today so I can start stitching them together to complete the quilt top.

That is a perfect beginners project. In fact I made a small square lap quilt for one of my first projects as well. The fabric you chose is beautiful! Very autumnal.

Nice autumn fabrics! I made a "bread cozy" for my bread basket out of a green similar to the one you have in this stack. A lap quilt sounds like a great project!

And thanks for visiting me and Thor!
