Oh Fransson Quilt Along
So I'm trying to participate in this online quilt along from www.ohfransson.com. I changed my fabric ideas to the Tula Pink Flutterby collection. I have had a bunch of these fabrics in my stash for a while, just waiting for the perfect use.
Here are the prints that I decided to use for my quilt.
Today we got the instructions on how to cut the fabric. Man am I confused. I can't cut all of my fabric at once and lay it out on paper. I have to cut and then sew my block, its just how I'm used to doing it. Plus I don't get why some of the lengths are 8.5 inches when the finished block is suppose to be 8 inches. It seems that you will have to cut alot in the end to get your blocks equaled up.
So I'm thinking that I'm not going to follow the pattern exactly. I'm going to use the idea and then come up with something similar to the original pattern... kind of like what I did with my other quilt from the quilt shop that I did. Cause if its not fun for me to make and it requires too much of my brain then I will get bored and not want to do it. Ha!!
Wish me luck.
