Something new...

I started a new project today!  I was so excited until...





I realized that I had failed to cut out enough of both the 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 strawberry pieces, and the 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 gingham squares!  UGH...I was NOT happy.  I will pick all of this up again tomorrow.  I was to upset to continue today.  I am hoping that I have enough scraps to finish this project.  Did you notice the pattern in the first picture?
 
 
When I have my cutting out marathons, I usually cut 10 or more projects at a time.  This is an example of how I "bundle" each quilt.  The scraps, the pattern and all of the pieces.  Then, when I am ready to start a new project, I just grab what's on top.  Unfortunately, this little strawberry picnic quilt was one of the last ones I cut and I missed the piece count.  It's OK, I will hopefully get it done for next weeks turn in!
 
I think that I am getting this "bloggers" mindset for picture taking!  I am trying to track progress and all sorts of happenings.  Let me know if you have any ideas as to how to organize my projects.  Would you like to see the assembly line method I have for cutting out projects?  Let me know.  I really appreciate all of the comments I get!!

I really hope you have enough to complete your projects. I'd love to see your assembly line method. I really could do with being more organised and methodical - I think it would save so much time.

Good morning Vicki. So you donate quilts? Where do they go? I think it's lovely that you do. Your profile says you also work with donated fabrics. Yes, I'd love to see your assembly line. I usually cut a few pieces then start sewing because I'm anxious to see the block : )

Yummy fabrics Vicki. Your new quilt will look a treat. Your assembly line must be a force to be reckoned with, with all the quilts you whip up. I for one would love to view your plan of action....and...yes you are becoming very proficient at this "blogger" picture taking business! As for the frustrating boo boo...as Scarlet would have said "Fiddle dee dee...I won't think about it today....I'll think about it tomorrow....after all tomorow is another day." Kim
