|some of the blues for the quilt|
Having rifled through my stash of fabrics I soon found what I needed to complement my new fabrics and then armed with my self healing mat, ruler and rotary cutter I proceeded to cut 32 squares in blue 16cm x 16cm, 32 white squares 16cm x 16cm, 128 blue and 128 white squares 8cm x 8cm, whew!
The fun part was about to begin! Each small square is marked with a diagonal line and starting with a large blue square, the white squares are placed in the corners and stitched on the diagonal line (or if it was a large white square it would be small blue squares, so it is either white on blue or blue on white)

Once I had stitched diagonally onto the larger square a cut is made 5mm from the stitching.
When the square had been pressed out et voila! And so onwards and outwards with the remaining 300 or so remaining pieces!
By the end of cutting and sewing these squares together I should have 32 with blue in the middle and 32 with white and then I can start piecing them together. Watch this space!
