I sewed a few of the blocks together and still don't love it. I think I'll take it apart and try and find another way to do it. I can't add fabric to what I have so I have to find a way to make it work.
today I need to start on the charity quilt and wash the fabric for my moms so I can get started on it too. I wish I had a magic cutter that just cut the fabric how it needed to be cut (magically, how it would best be displayed) if I just thought about it. deciding on a pattern and then cutting the fabric is my least favorite part of the process.
