Linking up with Judy over at the Patchwork Times.
I took a class at Fiddlesticks last Thursday with my cousin, Jackie. The pattern is called "Boston Logs," and it is by "Little Miss Sloppy." Apparently, her REAL last name IS "Sloppy!" That's awesome. There are more blocks in process, but they're not ready to be on the design wall - YET.
This first photo is just after I had all of the fabric (for the entire quilt) cut - this was just to get an idea of how the block would look when complete. No fabrics are in any of the blocks more than one time.:
The second photo was of the first block that was complete and squared up to the correct size:
The third photo is of the first 6 blocks on my design wall. Notice that 5 of the blocks have not been trimmed/squared down yet, and they are "wonky." This is the way it works with the process used to sew the blocks together and is not an error. All of the wonky gets cut off - no worries! At least the top/middle block IS squared up. :) :
Just 30 more blocks to go!! I will be bringing this project to a quilt retreat the 2nd weekend in March if I don't get a chance to work on it a lot between now & then. I want this one DONE - and fast! I'll be quilting it myself on my longarm and will use some sort of red thread (I stick with King Tut thread for the longarm work).
