Yesterday was a quality sewing day and I completed 20 blocks to make 3 rows for my APQ "Go Four It" QAL. Yeah me!
This spans my entire design wall which is 8 ft wide, so it should be plenty big for my double sized bed. I'm planning on adding a scrappy border like Moda Lissa's version. Oh I would so like to spend more time on this RIGHT NOW, but other obligations beckon. I need to finish up the invitations I'm making for my older son's upcoming wedding, and there are signature blocks for a wedding quilt that need to be assembled and table runners - acckkkkkk!!!! Maybe I can squeeze in a couple more block in between those jobs.
I'm glad I made myself a cheat sheet for this quilt. As I was sewing yesterday I thought I only needed 5 blocks across to make my width - wrong! Having it up on the design wall makes it easier to see what I have and where I'm going (which is crazy town -LOL!). My strategy is to add a row at a time, working above and below what I have now so I can hopefully keep the colors and the fabrics randomly scattered.
Here are close ups of two blocks I've stitched - love the purple typography square - its says "petunia" - ok it will only say "etunia" but I'll know what it meant!
And this block includes my chickens and do you see that blue/green block to the right of the chickens? Look closely - they are snails!
I didn't see them at all when I bought the fabric, I just liked the colors and I thought it was just a swoopy design. I'm not a fan of snails in my garden but these are kinda cute...and I bought them in a yellow/purple colorway too!
So off to work on wedding jobs. Linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday right here if she has a link up today. Hope your week is going well!
