One of the things with dying my own fabric I usually end up spending Friday night dying the color I need for that week. It takes all night for a piece to dye. I usually start around 8 PM and it will be ready for rinsing out by 8 AM the next morning. I also am not getting the stark contrast as others are getting since I have both light and dark in the same piece.
I'm making the boys tossed nine patches. I cut all the fabric for those, not squares like are on my list, but strips. I try to do strip quilting as often as possible. I also got some of the two sets of four patches strips cut but didn't get the last few units I needed for clue 2 cut.
I made a big goof this week, though. I cut my two purples at 2 1/2 instead of 2. I will have a lot of trimming to do in the future. I didn't even catch my mistake until I went to play with a possible layout for the units we have pieced so far. I was so disappointed in myself for making yet another big mistake in a project this week. Thankfully, Paul has offered to trim them all up for me. That will save me some time in the future.
