A few years back, Mr. Wonderful bought a box full of FQs from Missouri Star. It was an interesting mix that has been very useful to dip into from time to time. This cowboy fabric was in the lot.
Isn’t that fun? As I was sorting things in the sewing room, I thought this might make a cute little boy quilt. So I pulled some other bits to go along with this.
I realized while doing this how often I use collections together instead of just pulling from across my stash for a quilt. It was fun! Anyway, I used my 5 inch square die from Accuquilt to chop these up.
That didn’t take long at all and then I headed to the design wall.
When I make a quilt like this, I start at the bottom stacking the squares in each row from left to right. The square on the left will be on top of the pile and the one on the right on the bottom. Then I put a pin through the stack at the top.
When I’m all done, the top row of the quilt is on top. My stacks stay in order and right side up. I do it the same way every time so it has become habit. Now the design wall is free for something else and these are ready to head to the machine.
Have a great day!
