Well, I've gone from this
since the beginning of the year...
Right now I'm trimming all of the squares(or octagons rather)and then comes the fun part.
I get to put them up on the wall and decide which goes where!
Then have to put corners on all of them and sew them together...then quilt and bind it!
Deep breath. This is a big project with a tight deadline. The best way to get through it is one step at a time.
Wish me luck
Quilt for my sister-in-law's wedding in March
5760 pieces (already down to 2400- hooray!)
You can get the idea of what this will like at the top of my blog- I used the same pattern to make the quilt that is used as the background to the title.
This is a scrap quilt- it has lots of treasures: scraps from clothing my mother made my brother & I when we were little, a piece of fabric that was my grandmother's. Fabrics from friends in California, fabrics from almost every quilt I have made and lots of the clothes I've made for Coleen too.
The original quilt had larger squares - I believe they were 6", but for this quilt I shrunk them to 4" because I wanted to use the above scraps and a lot of them were not big enough to get pieces out of for a 6" block.
That means there will be 480 blocks in this quilt.
I hope to have it up on the wall by this weekend.
