I had 5 yards of fabric which was backing for one of the 3 quilts and borders and sashing for all. The store didn't have enough fabric for all the backings also, so I got something different for 2 of the backings.
So I cut the backing first and then cut all the long borders and long sashings before I cut the smaller ones. I did have about a half a yard left over when all was done. It's always a challenge to make sure everything works out fine.
And here is a small sample of 3 of the blocks all trimmed up ready to go. I did get most of them sewn together yesterday, so today I'll trim and lay them out. These quilts are going faster than I imagined.
Juliet is at the place of almost sitting up by herself. Isn't she cute in this chair?
