A Question

Is anyone going to sew the blocks as they go?

I am because then I KNOW it will get finished lol, thats my logic anyway

I'm planning to sew them as I go. Same reason as you! Gotta get some more stitching done first though! LOL

I am hoping to sew as I go as well.

I think I'll do it this way too.

Khris78 said...

Yes me too... I also plan to cut out all the fabric first as well, hopefully this weekend :)

Yep, thats the way I'm going!!

hmmm I agree, it is a very good way of making some great progress, and that way the quilt is far more likely to be finished!! So yep, I'm heading that way too.... when I get started (waiting on my book to arrive)

Well, just changed my plans yesterday. Deceided to draw all the stitchery first, put it into named envelopes. Then follow instructions on which block to do, And of course then finish one block at the time. Must do the cutting of the fabric soon as well. Don`t know if this works?? But I`ll try :-)

I also like to do the stitchery then put that block together so as there isn't as much to do at the end... I even iron the finished block and hang them on skirt hangers....bit much hey. lol

I like the skirt hanger idea Helen!
