Jason Quilts – Day Three
Today we went shopping at Joann’s for fabric. His first choice of fabric for the blocks in the center of the quilt changed the colors of the layout he had designed. And he was okay with that. Only bought 2 fabrics today, cuz Joann has another sale next week.
Came home, put the fabric in the washer & dryer while we had a lunch of Gpa’s homemade chili. After lunch, Jason ironed the preshrunk fabric and then it was time to cut. He cut strips for a strip set. Sewing a strip set for Block 1 was the first time Jason sewed a long strip. It was also the first time that Jason learned how to “un-sew”. VBG There are certain things that we can fudge, but there are certain things that get “un-sewed” and we all learn these things the hard way. VBG
The photo shows 3 blocks of Block 1 that he completed today. Blocks are 12-1/2” x 12-1/2”.
Jason gave permission for me to share his quilt design with the blogging world. So, as the quilt progresses, I will be putting up a PDF file of the construction, so if you like his quilt, you will be able to make one like it.
