there sure is a lot of prep work in this method! i know that once i get to start making some 9 patches (today!!!) i am gonna be thrilled, but until then i am feeling like i am spinning my wheels and using lots of time in the organization stage.
i have all of my strip sets sewn, and now sub cut as well. all went back into their little baggies. nice and together and organized! love it!
i sure would encourage you to do the sub cutting a bit at a time or you could really do some carpal tunnel damage! i used the june taylor fringe cutting ruler. you know, the one with the slots every half inch? but it is only about 7 inches high, so it is REALLY manageable. LOVED using that. i cut many sets of 4 stacked, but it was really easier on the cut with sets of 3 stacked instead of 4.
i have started bundling my P sets now. they are nesting in a basket. on a little snip of paper, i put P1 and how many i needed. i put what S's i used and how it looked. and pinned all the bits together. i think i have thru P6 batched up and in the basket so FINALLY i am gonna get to make some 9 patches today!!! YEAH!!!!!! can't wait!
