Happy Tuesday Everyone! It's that day of the week where we link up with those cool chicks at the Real Housewives of Oklahoma for In Your Neck of the Woods!
My bestie, Calianna, and I have been plotting for months about making identical quilts out of Moda's new line, Strawberry Fields. I just love it! It's just so 50's colored and strawberry-ish! Makes me oh so happy!!!!
Anywho, we finally got all our fabric in for our quilts and we planned a Girls Only Saturday for us to get together and start cutting out all the pieces. Luckily, my mom was nice enough to let us converge on her house (which was boy-free, except for my dad, the cat, and the dogs) to eat, cut, and sew.
Of course, we couldn't make a strawberry quilt without eating some strawberries, so my mom cut us up some with a dab of Cool Whip to munch between cutting!
Here's Calianna (who is appropriately colored for the occasion by the way) cutting her little heart out!
We started cutting out fabric for two queen size quilts at 11:00 AM. By 6:30 PM we still weren't done cutting, but Calianna had to go home to her boys. I kept cutting until 10:00 PM and I STILL wasn't finished cutting, but I was so exhausted from standing at that counter all day that I just quit and went to bed. The next morning I got up and spent another good hour cutting to finally finish up all the cutting! It's c-r-a-z-y how many pieces are needed for these stinkin quilts!!! But they're gonna be sooooooo pretty when they're done and we'll have matching quilts!
