Design Wall Monday 10-23-17

The center of the Lincoln quilt is quickly coming together.  On Saturday the dark green block was completed –

and on Sunday I finished the golden Lincoln block.

And now there is one – the dark purple block.  I don’t know if I am happy or sad that I am down to the last block.  This project has been on my large design wall for two years now and the space will look strange without the Lincoln quilt hanging there.

Once the dark green block was completed, I was able to finish the lower right side section of the top.

When the golden block was finished, I pieced it to the black block along with all the sashing and cornerstones.  While working on quilt blocks, I like to start sewing them together so that I don’t have all that at the end.  Sometimes you can’t do that, but anytime I can I do.

All the final decisions regarding the border have been made, so once the center is all together I will be ready to power sew and get it done.

Check in with Judy’s Design Wall Monday for wonderful quilt inspiration.

    This is coming along beautifully, and I love the blocks. How small are the squares? I love how colorful it is, and the black ties it nicely together.

      The checkerboard squares finished in the quilt are 5/8″. I cut neutral & colored strips 1 1/8″ wide, sewed them together and then subcut the strips. It has been a challenging, but very rewarding project.
