Well, I am just going to start out with this is all Sherry’s fault! I mean I LOVE Jacqueline DeJonge’s designs but my tendencies lean towards The Colorful Quilt. But, when Sherry said “Let’s do that one quilt in class–you know the Catch Me If You Can one.” I thought “Sure! Why not?”
This is Sherry!
The trick (for me and anyone who may want to try this quilt is ORGANIZATION). I went through and made tons of “cut pages”. These helped organize me and my students. For each schedule I counted the number of each fabric we needed to cut and put them in a spread sheet with the size and section each belonged to. Whew! What a task! Most of the pages were are very accurate–but saving most bigger scraps is essential (and saves A LOT of cutting and some fabric). Once all my fabric was selected it went into labeled bags (#1-28). Then the cutting began!And then sewing:
Sondra’s been working too!!
These are the cut sheets I made/used. They may be right on or a little off (especially if you are a scrap saver/user) but they are definitely close enough to help you get on track to making each part. I make no guarantees on the accuracy except to say these are exactly the sheets I used to make my Catch Me If You Can.
