I started pulling fabrics for the Bargello with Bonnie on Sunday! Richard wants to butcher one of the hogs this weekend but I am going to get my fabric strips ready just in case I can change his mind! :) I didn't really have any 2 1/2in pre-cut strips so I have to cut them. The requirements call for 128 strips for the lap size top. Now I may add to this later but I will start with the lap size.
Now I have been sick all night and morning and actually after getting to boys off to school, I went back to bed and slept until 10am. Now that is something that I never do. I know you don't want to hear me whine, but I feel terrible. Actually, it is 1:30 and I am still in my nightgown. I need to get my butt in gear and shower and start dinner soon. Anyway, back to quilting....I don't really feel much like sitting at the machine today so I thought I would try to get my strips ready. Since my fabric is stored in the bedroom and hubby goes to bed around 6pm I went in sat on the bed with my scissors and started cutting off fabric. I pulled out a tote and cut 2 strips off of EVERYTHING in it! I will try to cut them to size tongiht if I feel better. I cut enough for 78 strips, so I still need 50 more. I didn't really feel like sorting through my fabric so I just decided that "ANYTHING WOULD GO"
Now you can see in the left of the photo I did start cutting some of the strips to size, I think only 28 of them. The rest will have to wait until tonight. I was in bed last night thinking about this quilt and thought about doing it all in the same color family but quickly changed my mind this morning when I felt so bad. Who knows how this will turn out, it may be sooooo ugly. Oh well, if it is I will stop at the lap quilt size and donate it to someone!!!!
