October Precut Party

Did I tell you that October’s precut was Fat Quarters? I had a set picked out in GA and a plan to start the quilt before I broke my ankle. The plan for the 2 weeks at home was to quilt 5 or 6 tops … but plans changed. I will be working on not 1 but 2 fat quarter quilts and I’m going to try to quilt 2 small Strippie quilts.

I love Plus quilts and have been planning to do another one for a while so after considering some different options, I decided on a positive/negative Plus version. After making my first group of blocks I realized that I didn’t like the print blocks combined with the tone on tone blocks so I decided I’d make two quilts. The smaller one will be 45 x 63 and I think I have enough of the prints to make a larger version.

I’ll obviously have more variety when I get more blocks made but this is where I’m going with these.

Luckily, I have plenty of the background fabric for both quilts and the 9 inch finished blocks are quick to make.

I’ve got to run out to the dentist now to have my broken crown fixed but maybe I’ll work a little more on this tonight.


  1. Those look like quick blocks to make so I’m sure even doing 2 quilts will go quickly. I don’t buy fat quarter bundles very often, even though I do buy a lot of random fat quarters. But last week I bought a black and white bundle. I’m not sure exactly what it will become as I contemplate ideas.
