I decided to shoot for 12-inch finished blocks whenever possible. Some blocks will have to be longer, which I will accomodate in some way when I get the blocks cut and sewn and start arranging.
What this means as far as cutting goes, is that I am cutting big designs (and lists) 12.5 x 12.5 when possible. The small designs I will cut 6.5 x 6.5 and sew together to form the 12.5x12.5 blocks. Some designs I will cut 12.5 x 6.5 and sew together. I am saving t-shirt remains in *fun* colors to add to odd-sized blocks to bring them up to 12.5x12.5.
I haven't decided whether or not to do any sashing and/or borders, nor have I decided on backing or binding.
My plan is as follows:
- Cut out t-shirt designs in pre-determined sizes as best I can.
- Fuse blocks en masse to light-weight interfacing.
- Sew smaller designs together or to more fabric to bring them up to 12.5x12.5
- Square up blocks.
- Decide on a layout and make decisions about sashing, borders, etc.
Wish me luck!
