Now that the Bears Paw quilt is off at the quilters I have already started on my next one. Spent 6 hours yesterday cutting out the pieces for the next quilt. The assorted colours above are from one jelly roll so these came pre-cut at 2 1/2inches wide, I just had to measure the length to cut which was easy and fun.

Cutting out the white fabric was a bit more challenging though. It came as one big piece so it had to be cut down into 2 1/2 inch srips then cut to the relevant length. Turns out I didn't quite order enough of the white fabric, it is short by one 2 1/2 inch strip! I am actually planning on turning this into a queen size quilt though so I will need to buy more white fabric anyway. 

Below is a picture from the book I am working from which shows the overall pattern it will have when put together.

Lots of work, but it will look wonderful.

HAHA! you are a very keen quilter!

I much prefer the colours you have for the quilt, than the one it shows in the book. :)

Can't wait to see you start it!

Yes, it's always exciting starting new things. I agree, I wasn't keen on the colours in the book. This quilt will be for our bed so the colours will suit perfectly!
