Today I finally got the cutting set up and I cut the background fabric for the Building Blocks quilt. I made a few error in my cutting so stopped to figure things out. I was listening to TV as I cut, and sat down with the computer to make a spreadsheet to see how to cut the remaining fabric that I had. In doing that it seemed like we would need more fabric that on the list by L. I sent her an email but she wrote back that she couldn't understand why I would make such a chart, and that she checked her figures and the amount people were supposed to by was over by about a 1/4 yard and how people on the facebook were posting they were able to do the houses with the left overs from the other cuts. So I guess I'm wrong - but since we were supposed to cut strips for the houses that seems like they are short on fabric. I'm still thinking about what fabric to use for the featured fabric, connectors and binding. I will put what ever is on the front on the back of that particular block so that is settled. I can't find my thread, nor some of the blocks I worked on for KH and the Friday Block party animal and traditional blocks. But I did remember the different greys already have a project to be used in so not using for Building Blocks. I know I will learn alot with this project, but don't think the quilt will be particularly pretty so I don't really want to use my solid fabrics for the featured fabric. So I've been putting put different fabrics to see how I think they will look.
I cleaned the kitchen and paid the bills. Tomorrow I will need to go back to org stuff so that is off my plate. Interesting movies while cutting or planning: Transamerica, Time to Kill are ones I remember the name of.
