I am amazed I have gotten half of these blocks pieced together the last two days. Of course it has been just about the only thing I have worked on but it is really going together much easier than I thought it would.
Here it is half way, it is a little larger than the design wall so it is kind of hanging over the sides, but I think you can see what most of the layout is. I kind of had to prop the design wall on furniture – not much room to work in here! I’ll take a better photo when I get done with it. I don’t know if I will be working on it all weekend, most likely not.
Some one asked what kind of backing fabric did I get for the “Going In Circles” quilt – I thought I showed what I had gotten but I hadn’t so here is a photo of it. I intend to use the darker green that is the vines for the binding. I think that will go very well. Besides the vines it is scattered throughout some of the blocks in the main part of the quilt as well. This backing is a wide back – no seams! I love that they started to make that stuff awhile back. I use it often.
In between working on everything else that I have been working on this past 6 weeks since we got home from our trip I have also been quilting a smaller quilt which I have showed pictures of now and then. I had taken it with us on our trip intending to quilt it while we traveled and never got around to it. Instead it came home with us unfinished. I put it on the smaller hoop that I normally keep in the living room and I have been working on it in while watching tv. I have a little more to finish quilting on it (hand quilting also – all I do). Hopefully it will be finished by the end of next week – I really want to get done with it. This is the corner that needs to finished – almost done!
I have been pushing myself on a lot of these projects because I really want to get these things finished. I had started way too many things about two years ago and I don’t want to do that again. I told myself I wasn’t going to start any new projects until I got some of these finished – that is good incentive isn’t it :) So far I have been sticking with the plan.
