initially, i was going to make a smaller quilt, saving half of the batting for another project.
then, i unrolled it just to see how much bigger it would actually be, and i couldn't resist just going for it.
here's a shot of my make-shift cutting table and you can see the quilt top coming together on the floor in the background.
once the strips were satisfactorily in place, i pinned them end-to-end to make it easy for me to see who went with who once the sewing began.
the quilt top is now waiting to be ironed and i'll soon begin sewing the long strips together to create a cohesive block. hopefully, by the end of the day i'll be able to start quilting!
