Design Wall Monday 12-30-13

This looks to be my last quilt top for 2013.  I managed to find some time to sew more green & tan 9-patches during the Christmas holiday and this is what my design wall looked like on Friday.

123013    (835x1024)Saturday I finished the last four 9-patches and sewed the center of the quilt together.  Today the borders went on.

123013A  (875x1024)As you can see the quilt top (63.5″ x 76″) is larger than my design wall.  It is hard to get a good picture, but here is a close up that shows the background fabric better.

123113B   (1024x867)This project was not on my end-of-year goal list, but getting it completed did bring the total fabric used in 2013 to 100 yards which was a goal.

Next up is Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler – yes, I am sewing on this long-term project again.  The goal is to complete rows A & B.  This is block B-9.
