A sewing bee

I’m hosting an actual sewing bee tomorrow. My guild was rather late to get started on our QuiltCon quilt and we’d like to show the top at our meeting next week.

This is possibly the most prep work I’ve done on a quilt. I just know there isn’t much time for messing up, or forgetting a step.

My favourite step so far was this one:

You can see these are odd shapes, and there is a grain line to consider as well. I laid out a metre of solid black and worked out how much yardage we will need to create. (We’re making strip sets!)
