Been sewing like a Psycho and finished the patchwork step of Rachel's quilt along Wednesday night.
Sliced up those strip sets into over 200 segments, then re-sewed them together into 42 blocks. The pattern calls for 48 blocks to make a 60 X 80"quilt, but I am going to shorten mine up to 60 X 70" and save some goodies for the back ;)
Oh yah and I ironed seams....a LOT of seams.
Last night I figured I may as well just finish it off so I could enter for the prizes. So, here she is (excuse the crappy lighting):
I love it. I absolutely adore this Hello Betty line- how did I not know about it before? Thanks, Katie, for tipping me off :-) The colors are so fresh, and I love them paired with the linen. The linen was a bit of a pain to work with, kinda stretchy, and MANY of my corners don't match up, but it is good enough to make this girl happy. This quilt will look amazing in my family room....may need to use some of my extra bits to make some coordinating pillows for my couch.
Phew! I am going to go enjoy a sewing-free weekend now ;) Happy Friday!
