Week 2 Red Fort of Agra Quilt Along
Happy 2nd week of our Quilt Along!
Have you purchased your fabrics? I have only seen one picture on Instagram of fabrics chosen for the QAL. Make sure you post a picture of your fabrics and tag me: @thenomadicquilter or tag #redfortquiltalong I can't wait to see what each of you chose.
During week 2 we are cutting our fabrics. I noticed that depending on if you have a little wiggle room or not you really have to make precise cuts with the fat quarters. Sometimes stores will over cut the fabric an inch or 1/2 inch so you get a nice FQ if the fabric isn't cut exactly straight. My fat quarters were exactly 18 x 21 inches. I cut three at a time and if they weren't lined up just right I would be short a 1/4 on some of the 4 1/2 inch cuts. All that to say, take your time cutting.
Make sure to post a picture of your cut fabric.
Above are all my Fabric B (2 1/2 inch squares). I chose solid and blender fabrics that match my Fabric A fabrics. Below is a picture of all the fabrics for my quilt. I am loving the bright colors. This collection is Pollinate by Jessica Swift for Art Gallery Fabrics. I have it on good authority that this line will be shipping in the next couple weeks. So if you like it be on the lookout.
Let me know if you have any questions about cutting. Enjoy the process and post those pictures!
