Design Wall Monday 04-08-13

On my design wall are the 7 blocks for the Rings ‘n Things quilt top.

040813    (1024x558)Each block has 13 pieces but takes me over an hour to piece because of curves.  Three more blocks are cut, however another project has demanded attention.

I looked at the month of April and almost panicked.  The Hot Flashes quilt needs to be finished – quilted and bound – this month and it will be the largest (68″ x 84″) that I have quilted myself.  Next Saturday is quilt guild and the following Saturday will be babysitting grandchildren, so that leaves two weekends.

040813A  (1024x858)Saturday and Sunday was spent here.  I am using blue/green variegated thread on the blocks, black thread on the black sashing and gray thread on the gray sashing.

If I can get the quilting finished and the binding attached, then I can hand sew the binding down during quilt guild.  It sounds like a good plan, doesn’t it?
