Once the fabrics are cut, it takes just one seam across to make the blade point. I found that I could use them as leaders and enders as I was working on something else. Now I have a lot more blades made.
These are the two priority prints that are driving the palette:
My plan is to make enough - I need at least 168 - and lay them out on the design wall to distribute the prints and colors, then sew them into blocks. If I make blocks first, it would limit how I could spread out the prints. I have more than the three or four of each print shown, but not enough to put them up on the wall yet. I'll keep cutting and making blades, and soon I'll have enough. Here's the EQ plan; the fabrics used in it are not the same as my actual fabrics, but they're close enough for illustration.
With holiday prep and related festivities, I don't have much time for sewing these days, so it may be awhile until I have the layout on the wall, but that's okay. There's no deadline for this project.
