- Cut koi and green batik fabrics for February NewFO
- Cut more kangaroo fabric for Kangaroo Walkabout (aka floribunda)
- Gather blue strips/strings
- Make 10 blue string blocks Saturday and 10 blocks Sunday
I cut the green sashing Friday evening. I was still a little skeptical about cutting into the koi fabric so I saved it for later in the weekend.
When I bought the kangaroo fabric I was still in my wash everything mode. I washed it and then of course it needed ironing but since I had bought the end of the bolt (at least 5 or 6 yards) it was just such an overwhelming task that it never got ironed. I sorta folded the fabric in half and wound the wrinkled mess back on the cardboard bolt. Now I have to iron a portion at a time without dragging the whole thing on the floor and then cut what I need. I am *very* tempted to wash the whole thing again and take it out of the dryer before the wrinkles are set.
My *only* goal for the next week is to finish the blocks and get the top together. I am sew close there is no use relegating it to the corner when I can just gitterdone :) and I can't wait to see what it looks like!!!
