First cuts done on Princess quilt

Fit for a Princess! is too long to use every time I’m talking about this quilt, so from now on I’ll call it the Princess quilt for short. I think I’ll be talking quite a lot about it, hence the royal introduction; I cut 11 of 20 fabrics before and after lunch, just as planned. Sewing session on Sundays feels great!

Fit for a Princess! quilt – First half of 8″ squares

I also cut the 4″ squares but they are currently feeling shy and chose to stay in between the larger squares. As promised, these are the fabrics that I’m using (from left to right):

  • Illusion Cashmere from the Hyperreal Garden collection by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics
  • Foliage Pink from the Outfoxed collection by Lizzy House for Andover Fabrics
  • Labyrinth Flamingo from the Hyperreal Garden collection by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabric
  • Oval Geo Pink from the I Heart collection by Rashida Coleman Hale for Timeless Treasures
  • Folk Art Pink by Kaffe Fassett for Westminster
  • Jewels Coral from the Outfoxed collection by Lizzy House for Andover Fabrics
  • Lichen Mist from the Terrain collection by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics
  • Aqua Leaves from the Little Apples collection by Aneela Hoey for Moda Fabrics
  • Jewels Green from the Outfoxed collection by Lizzy House for Andover Fabrics
  • Dots Petals Natural from the Sunkissed collection by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics
  • Lattice Pewter from the Metro Living collection from Robert Kaufman

Although the squares first seem rather large, they are surprisingly quick and easy to cut. Since my starting material was either quarter or half yards, I simply started from one end and the last, fifth square then became four small squares. My 14″x14″ and 6″x6″ rulers were on fire and paid for themselves already today. There’s something zen about square cutting.
