So, I have an issue and I need some help. I am sure that it isn't a huge problem and I think I know how to work myself out of this situation, BUT I wanted to get your help and insight into how I should go about it BEFORE I screw it all up and thus causing havoc and mayhem in my brain...
because we all know how fabric obsessed, people feel about their goods and I have been holding on to these gems for quite some time, trying to find the guts to cut into them...
Well, I did finally...and I decided to take all the fussy cut rectangles and make a lap quilt to be a present for next year...problem...I have all these built up rectangle blocks and I need them to be square so I can make them into rows, right?
I like the split rail fence blocks I made to off set the fussy blocks, but I want those blocks to be bordered, as well. I have more than enough yardage to keep on going...I just need some help in what will be my next step.
Of course, I am not using a pattern. I am just randomly making this up as I go along.
Do I build up my fussy cut blocks one more time in white and then cut them back down to equal the height and width of the rail fence block once that is bordered in white?
I am going crazy and I made myself a promise that I would not sew with any other fabric, but my small Christmas stash until it is all gone.
This is Home Girl in need of Starbucks and some guidance from the more experienced quilters out there. So, guide away...
FYI: The fabric featured above is a combination of Holly Jolly Snowmen by Kathy Schmitz for Moda and Dear Santa, by Diane Knott for Cloth Works.
