Wendi from Shiny Happy World posted about a quilt along and I was immediately on board. A quilt has been on my list of things I want to do for months, and I was always overwhelmed by where to start. There are so many fantastic quilt designs and patterns, but they all seem very intimidating.
But the idea of doing one quilt block a week seems much more attainable. I had never used a rotary cutter before, I just cut my hexagon fabric by hand because precision isn’t super important. I was pleasantly surprised with the rotary cutter, I got the hang of it and was able to cut out the 2″ squares pretty quickly.
I chose orange and aqua for my first square and used the many, many scraps I have from my hexagon quilt. I have two bins of 2.5″ scraps sorted by color, so it was pretty easy to get the squares cut to 2″.
I’m hoping to sew the squares together this weekend and I’m eagerly awaiting the next week’s square that Wendi had come up with.
Is anyone else joining in on the Controlled Chaos quilt along? Read more about it here.
