Over the past few days I cut up the fabric - 128 strips out of around 43 or so different types of fabric. I should just need 120 but I miscounted and figured a few extra 12/2.5 inch strips couldn't be a bad thing to have lying around for a project like this.
After I had all my strips cut I picked a few sets of fabrics for the first few blocks and threw them up on my impromptu design wall (I stuck a fleece blanket up on the wall with 3M tape - instant design wall and super movable if need be) to see how I liked some of the colour combinations.

If all goes well I'm hoping to get the bulk of this quilt top done over the course of the next few nights. Hopefully I can show some progress with you over the next few days!
Thanks for stopping by - see you tomorrow!
