I've decided to go ahead and start sewing the squares I already have fabric for. I'm doing strips of three, alternating between 2 spotty and 1 floral and 2 floral and 1 spotty square.
Now I'm sewing 3 strips together to make one square, alternating the strips. It is essential that the squares are cut neatly, I'm having to measure and cut almost every square again so that the lines will match when it's all together.
Now I've been told that different weight fabrics aren't good in a quilt! I don't plan to try washing this so I'm just hoping that it will work with my two weights: thinnish cotton and thick cotton fabric from Clarke & Clarke (one of my favourite designers.)
I need to go the fabric shop to buy more matching fabric for the rest of the quilt. I'm planning on having more blue spotty fabric and pink roses. I'll update as the quilt progresses. I'm actually quite excited about this!
