Here's a new project I saved to work on while camping last week. I cut out all the funky shapes for my Picadilly Circle quilt. Here's one of the blocks I did as a sample to see if I like it. The block is not complete because it needs a circle in the middle. I did not cut the circles yet. This is a quilt from Quiltmaker Magazine. I like it because it uses lots of scraps in different colorways. Every morning while my husband and son were asleep I would cut shapes out of black fat quarters. From the rest of the fabric I would cut pieces for my string quilt sashings. Whew. After FIVE days the cutting is complete. I'm glad I did this in spurts. I don't know when it will get sewn, I'll consider it a quilt "kit". I can't believe that it took me all this time to cut it, and that there are only 12 blocks total. Whatever. I'm thankful for Accuquilt!
