But for now, lets get to Design Board Monday...
Now I wasn't going to show off this quilt until it had a bub laying on it but.......yea, what the heck, here it is and if 'Granny G' is reading this, I hope she can keep a secret!
I was going to sew all the squares together first but I just couldn't wait to see how it was going to look when joined so two rows were joined.
Then I got on to finishing all the centre blocks and started sewing those together....before too long, I had all five centre rows.....so time to start sewing the rows together.
It is interesting to note that I read a blog tutorial titled...."Make a Quilt in 30 minutes" which was also a raggy quilt and wondered what they are on!.....it took me 30 minutes alone to make the 3 squares for each row! Are they over achievers? I don't think I am an under achiever....maybe I am just the tortoise....slow and steady wins the race! I still have a 3 rows to attach to complete the centre and then I will create a border of half squares.
In this photo, I flipped the completed section over so you can see the cuddly minky on the back....it looks a bit yellow in this picture but it is actually an off white colour.
I have also done a fair amount of stitching on my 'A Country Tea Party' block 4 and as usual, now that the tracing is done and the stitching is underway.....I am loving the process....which is of course why I do stitcheries! Block 6 arrived this week......I think I am falling behind! I also received the 6th package of 'Brookfield' so I will have to pay a little extra attention to that as well.
That is what my Design Board looks like this week......now, how about you?
