I have a love/hate relationship with precuts. I love getting one bit of every piece in a line of fabric. I love that everything matches. I love how pretty they are all tied up with a ribbon.
But gosh, it is hard to break them open! I tend to hold onto them too long and then I can’t find border fabric to match. I bought this lovely bundle last summer when we visited the Missouri Star Quilt Company. I have had the hardest time trying to decide what I want to make with it. It has been years since I made a quilt for my own bed and decided this bundle would be perfect t for a quilt for my room. So I got brave.
And I started cutting.
I like to try to use up every bit of a precut bundle. This is what I hade left.
And I am short one 2.5 inch square of each fabric! I will order a charm pack of this line when I order border fabric. My blocks will measure 8 inches finished.
I am going to use all fabrics for both the stars and backgrounds. This is what not to do:
I have enough pieces cut for 96 blocks. No deadline on this so I will work on it a little at a time. It’s nice to have a project cut and ready to go when you have a few minutes to sew.
