Big Blue

The big blue quilt is ready to be quilted, in three parts. I have cropped it to show more or less how it will look when assembled.
The red strips on either side of the center part are really just placed there, but will be used as narrow connector strips in the finished work. See the photo below for clarity.

I made much more patchwork that I didn't use for this composition, and took lots of breaks, walking around, checking out inspiration on Pinterest and quitting early to read on the deck. At this point it measures 54x40", so I think that it a good size for a wall quilt.

This is how it looks on my design wall, but I could move it around in Picasa3 and I really like it better as a vertical.

GOOD NEWS!!! One of my readers sold me her Janome 6500P!


 Yay!!! She was gifted a 7700 for her birthday, so I am the lucky gal to get her oldie but goodie.

   the 7700
 What a relief to have the search end. I will set up one machine as a piecer and the other as a quilter and really get some work done!

  5. Seriously? You started this on Friday and had the top pieced by Sunday?!? You're really bad for my self-esteem.

    Just kidding, but I have NO IDEA how you work so quickly! (And I don't just mean the piecing. Decision making can take a long time!)
