Just in case you've never seen a kit in production, here's what it's looking like for us:
This is 8 bolts of Kona Ocean which will be cut into around 36 Building Block Kits. I also have another 8 bolts of black fabric, and thread on order so hopefully these kits will be put together and ready to go by next week.
Also on the cutting table today is the Building Blocks cheater cloth quilt panel from Spoonflower!
I decided to use gray and blue for this panel, with all the quilting lines printed in black. I'm open to other suggestions, so if you have a colorway in mind just post it to the comments below.
Basically I'm designing this fabric so if you don't want to pick up the Building Blocks Quilt Pattern, and you don't want to bother piecing the blocks together, you can always pick up this cheater cloth panel instead.
|The cheater cloth already has the quilting lines marked, so you can just layer the blocks and quilt on the line!|
I've taken the time to create it simply as another choice for this project, and certainly a great option if you're short on time and patience with marking the blocks.
And for the last cutting project of the day!
The last thing on my chopping block today is a large piece of hardie backer board. I have about 100 different surfaces in my bathroom to match up from the shower surround to the wood around the shower to the existing tile in the main room. Careful cutting and placement of this board will be my main job this afternoon.
It's going to be slow work, but I'm not on a deadline so I'm going to take my time. No sense in rushing when the job has already been ruined once!
Whew! I have a big day of work ahead. I'd better get cracking!
Let's go quilt (or cut lots of random stuff),
