As I mentioned in my last post, I am working on a puff (or biscuit) quilt using our new Sweetgrass Prairie collection. So far I’ve been cutting and doing a lot of repetitive steps, but I’m having fun seeing the progress of the little puffs, and at the same time I’m getting a better grip on some of the basic techniques.
The project started with cutting the prints into five-inch squares (or just starting with a few charm packs) and then cutting four-inch squares out of a basic fabric. I had started with the fat quarter sampler so there was a lot of cutting to do! I am happily no longer a mere beginner with the rotary cutter.
This quilt is turning out to be a great solution to tackle the numerous prints in this collection, while still being simple enough for my skill level. I’m looking forward to assembling the array of puffs into a scrappy pattern with all of the soft colors and beautiful blooms. It’s a pleasant reminder that this ever-growing pile will someday turn into a cuddly quilt.
In the meantime, I’ll keep pinning until I run out of pins, and sewing to get my pins back. Eventually I will be ready to move on to the next step!
