This is a quick overview of my process – please purchase a copy of the Bling quilt pattern for more detailed instructions.

The Making of Bling Quilt Part 2 of 4 – Cutting the Fabrics from Christa Quilts

I’m working on both versions of my Bling quilt at the same time, so it will be double the fun! If you remember from my last post, I’m making the same design and using the same Geo Pop fat quarters for both quilts, but one will have a white background and the other will have a black background. Any colorful prints will work as long as you have contrast between your fat quarters and background fabric.
