Did you have a nice weekend?
I sure did- sewing and sewing and sewing!
I got all my strips together.
Then I ironed and cut them into 11 1/2" blocks.
Which I just laid out on the bed to get an idea of how it will go together.
Now, the finished quilt will probably go in the other bedroom because it has butter yellow walls and light pink/cream curtains. It's a little girlie for our room- which is more sea greens and blues leaning toward mermaid snuggles pirate theme.
I just recently took the quilted bed skirt off and put on the white yoyo bed skirt I found at Home Goods. It's light for Summer. It looks green from across the room- doesn't it?
OK, so I am waiting for the UPS guy to bring my new sewing machine- the mailman and the Fed Ex guys have come and gone.
I am going to go get to work on my place mat swap- I have an idea and I sketched it out- I'll take some sneak peeks but this one has to be a surprise until she receives it.
I'll be back later with quilt updates.
I'm beginning to feel afraid of the quilting part- y'all need to start pouring on the encouragement!
This is 7 rows by 6 rows of 11.5" blocks- that'll be 77 by 66 without any borders- I must be mad!
