Friday Progress Report

On Wednesday I started sewing the columns together on the One Block Wonder.

111816-914x1024

Just over half of the columns are sewn together.  I do have to say that for some reason I expected the columns to be shorter, but I am happy that there didn’t.  Right now my best guess is that the top will be 50ish x 60ish inches before borders.  And I still haven’t made a decision on the borders.  A wavy stripe from the same fabric line was found on Ebay for $25 a yard – uh no thank you!  I should have thought about the borders when I originally bought the fabric, but I didn’t.  Oh well, I will figure something out.

I have also been making four string blocks a day.  I am not exactly sure what quilt they will be in, but I am still enjoying the process of sewing all those strings so I will continue.  Only two more blocks are needed for the leader/ender quilt top and then it will be finished.

My end-of-year goal is to finish the OBW quilt top, the leader/ender quilt top, the Rocky Mtn Bear Claw quilt top and two Lincoln blocks.  I should be able to manage that, shouldn’t I?

Have a good weekend,

Marlene

    No gifts to make in between? That’s what’s panicking me right now. OBW is looking mighty fine!
