Cutting Squares for My Next Quilt

fabric squares cut for hourglass quilt

Last week, I posted about how I found some fabric I love to make a quilt for my son’s twin bed. I spent the weekend cutting it into 5.5 inch squares….. 384 squares to be exact.

I don’t know what got into me, in the past it would have taken me a month to cut that many squares. I did it in a weekend! Whoo hoo! Improvement.

I’m about to start sewing my squares. (My favorite part!) I’m going to explain step by step what I’m doing, and I think this quilt will be a good one for a beginner, so check back soon!

 

Next Up! Twin Boys Quilt with Oh Deer! Fabric

moda's oh deer fabric to use in boy's quilt

I’ve been wanting to make my son a quilt for his twin bed and finally found some fabric I think he’ll like and that will grow with him, at least for a few years.

Cute, right? I bought 12 half yards and 5 yards for the backing and binding. I’ve cut a little, and am so ready to really get started. Too bad I can’t add an hour to the day just for making stuff. But wouldn’t that be nice?
