quilt along, week one

Yay! It's time to start Randi's "On the Road to Spring" quilt along! She has six lessons, one per week, to help you piece, quilt, and bind your own masterpiece. Mia, Nancy, and some of Nancy's friends are joining in on the fun, too!

Week One is all about choosing and preparing the fabrics for the quilt. Here are the fabrics I've chosen:

The tutorial instructions include washing, drying, and ironing the fabric. Done and done! Here's the mountain of threads I cut from the edges of the fabrics, too:
