The Anchor: The Cutting

Another update on my progress with the Anchor Quilt pattern by Tula Pink.
I would try to cut one or two colors in the evenings after dinner. It didn't take long. Maybe 15 minutes per print to cut the 40-100 squares in each print.
By the end of the week I had cut all the squares and sorted them. That didn't mean the cutting was done!
Each row includes cutting instructions for the background fabrics. Then I had to layout each section so I could begin to assemble the sections. This was when I knew the print choices were what I needed to get the desired effect.

I see this project hanging around for a while before I get to the finish line. Much more like a marathon than my usual sprints.

If you want to keep up with my progress in close to real-time I recommend you follow me on Instagram. I post almost every day and several times on the weekends. Everything from crochet, to knitting, dyeing yarn, shopping and quilting shows up in my feed.
