a project for the long weekend

My goal is to get the sashing cut and at the very least get the rows sewn together. It’s a bit of a maze trying to get through the house at the moment!

    Good luck! You’re like me – I never iron my fabric before cutting unless it’s really wrinkled!

    Loving your choice of fabrics. Isn’t it great when random patterns and colours are put together they just seem to harmonise. Brave selection! Judith xo

    Um, those are on your floor, right? How on earth are you able to get up and down to arrange them? I’m almost 30 weeks pregnant and would have a serious issue with laying out a quilt on the floor right now.

    Love the choice of fabrics though!

    Good luck…can’t wait to see it done! Oh, and enjoy being able to lay your projects on the floor. It won’t be long before you have a little one crawling around trying to “help” mommy :)

    Looks like a fun project to be working on over the weekend! I can just imagine how long this layout would last in our house with those curious cats wanting to “help.” Have fun!

    You know what my first thought was when I saw/read this? “I wonder how she’s going to do this next year!” With a little crawling babe underfoot you’re going to need one huge design wall :)

    Looks like a fun weekend coming up!

    I especially love the squares that are half on floor and half on the rug. It looks like they are crawling all over your house, which it sounds like they are. Oh, the space we relinquish to our quilts… best to you.

    Well a little mess is worth it, to see it all together right? It is going to be a lovely collection of fabrics, great way to show off a collection of OOP fabrics, I would never part with the quilt.
