WIP: Tula Pink’s Moonshine Abacus

Another Craftsy quilt kit!  This quilt is called Abacus, fabric and design by Tula Pink!

I have started cutting:





Still yet to cut:


I am attempting to fussy cut the prints with lots of detail.  Notice the picture above – it shows the multiple color ways of the flowers and the campsite.   They will need to be fussy cut – at least the 10.5 x 5.5 rectangles.


Why is this taking so long?  Well, it is totally my fault.  I have directional issues.  I want the fabrics like the deer heads to be facing upright.  For this reason, I couldn’t do the quick flying geese method.  Instead, I am cutting the 5.5 inch squares to put on the 10.5 x 5.5 rectangles.  Then I will have to trim all of them with my Wing Clipper template.  I get that I am making more work for myself… but it will look amazing, so worth the time, right?

Linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced’s WIP Wednesday!
