My cutting corner without any tidying. That cord in the photo is killing me.
First of all, thank you so much for your sweet comments on the last post. I appreciated each one of them. They really make me want to try harder, without even making me feel guilty for being a slacker on here. I have the best readers! Thanks :-)
Maybe it's because it's called Summersville, but I've been dying to cut up this fabric since summer started. And even before that.

It's dreary here today, which is absolultey lovely since almost every day is bright and sunny here. Normally I would wait until tomorrow to take pictues, but not anymore. Here ya go. :-)
I wanted to do something really simple because the prints are quite busy. I debated sewing the blocks together and making one big 2-1/2" squares quilt, but in the end, the white sashing won out. I think I'm going to do little strips of squares around the border just like this.
Want to make one? Here's the super quick jist of it:
Cut 10" Layer Cake squares into 10" x 2.5" strips. Sew 5 strips together to make one 10.5 x 10" square. Cut the opposite direction so you have four 2-1/2 strips of 5 squares.
Sew 5 rows together to make one block. Sash if you want. Quilt. Bind. I don't know how many blocks it is going to make yet, or how big it is going to be, because part of sewing just for fun is not doing math until it is absolutely necessary. Pretty much, I'm just going to sew until I run out of fabric. I love doing that... :-)
Anyway, that's my progress on this for now. I am hoping to get the quilt top finished up tonight.
At least that's the plan. I'm hoping it works, because turns out I match my quilt today.
It was meant to be.
