Yesterday and today I spent my sewing time catching up on the Crazy Mom Quilts quilt along #5. I had gotten distracted (and overwhelmed by week 3 which was cutting out 490 square sets) and was a tad behind. (stuck on week 2 with a little 4 patch square)
When this weeks edition was posted I noted that I was behind and Amanda Jean responded with a note that I could catch up :) taking this as a challenge, I was off.
I must admit that I did skip most of week 1 which was cutting white strips. I figured I could do that as I went along although her directions would had cut fabric left overs. To get over the hump I pieced and stripped and cut and assembled all at once rather than as separate steps, but the end result is I am now caught up and have most of my square sets cut.
The Hope Valley jelly roll only had 24 strips, the pattern requires 31, so I have the 24 done plus I cut up a couple charm squares. I now need to plan ahead to what I want to do with the back to determine if I want to cut up more charm squares or cut into some fabric I have. I think I am going to do a little of both, leaving enough charm squares to do a strip across the back.
