I've cut up all the color pieces and have begun to cut the white pieces.
I've also become quite good at Joann coupon cutting.
I got all of my materials at Joann's because that's really the only fabric shop we have in town. It took me a while but I found fabrics that I am really pleased with.
The yellows are killing me. I am so excited.
I can't wait until I get to start piecing it together. I'm thinking about hand quilting vs machine quilting.
I can't quilt this big ol' thing on my little machine so if I wanted to save money (and gain some experience) I would hand quilt it.
Another option is to have someone with a long-arm machine quilt it for me. There are some local options for me but it's still pretty pricey. Also, expedient. They would have it done months before I would.
For now I'm just working on it when I need a study break.
Maybe after October I'll be more excited about the actual quilting process.
