Mid-month check in

Howdy Folks,

It's time to check in with Shanna and Melissa, ALYOF. I've been working steadily on my quilt top. A little bit every day, I hope I can finish by the end of the month.

This quilt is 78 x89 inches. It has 224 six inch blocks in it!! That's a lot of blocks. I blogged about my goal here.

pattern by Jessica Smith,

I am finished piecing them all together.

Now for putting the blocks together. You have to be very careful here, or your design wont turn out right.

As you can see, the pattern calls for 2 more colors than I am using. I didn't have ANYTHING in my stash to go with these black, white and reds. And as I was testing, I didn't have time to get anything to go with them either. So I just stuck with these 4 colors.

 I think it will still be pretty striking.... not that I haven't thought about adding some yellow  for some pops of color... LOL.... too late now though, I am not redoing some of these blocks.

  1. 224 is a lot of blocks! good luck getting it all together, can't wait to see it linked up finished at the end of the month!

  2. I am thinking that your quilt will look wonderful in just the four colors, my friend. Looks like bandana type prints to me. I like. Looking forward to seeing your top together ... :) Pat


Your comments make my day :)
