Hello Cotton Cuts Mystery Quilt Folks!
It is my month for the clue block for "Name of the Rose" quilt! I am block 3 and I received this fun pink envelope in the mail with fabrics and lovely Gingiber stickers! Oh I love those cute little animal stickers! Are you not sewing along yet but want to?? Check out Cotton Cuts for more info!
I sat down today to sew my clue. I have to confess I have never sewn with pre-cut pieces like this. And you know what- it was great! I liked that the pieces were already cut for me. I do a lot of cutting and I have some issues with my wrist when I cut. It gets sore and swollen because I have some arthritis. So having precut pieces was quite a treat! Also, the pieces having the angled corners also meant that I did not have to do ANY TRIMMING! That was wonderful!
I just followed the directions and diagrams. It was easy and fun! I liked how accurate all the pieces were.
As I was pressing these, my husband walked by and commented on how much he liked those fabrics. Hmmmmm. I'm thinking he prefers these over my florals! That's okay because I love these Gingiber prints too (so much that I am making a separate Christmas quilt with Merrily by Gingiber, with a similar look).
Here is my final block for this month's clue. I don't know the eventual quilt top image but I do know that this is a fun way to do a project! Thanks Cotton Cuts for including me!
