On the Design Wall

Sometimes you just have to give in and put a quilt on the design wall and finish it!

My “ Narragansett Blues” quilt ( pattern by Bonnie Hunter) has been in a basket for a few years. The basket has traveled from home to my studio more recently but in the past, to Bedford Pennsylvania for classes with Bonnie Hunter, and the back home again and to North Kingstown for classes with Bonnie Hunter and then back home again. 

This basket has really traveled!

So when I recently moved it around the studio for the third time in one day, I decided it was time to be completed so the basket could be emptied!

So here it is on the machine with a row being added to the left side of the quilt top. 

Here is the center section of the quilt on the design wall. 

I am hoping to have the left and center section sewn together and completed today. 

Let’s see how I do

100 Blocks in 100 Days

It is complete!

The “Make the Cut” sew along began July 1, 2020.

It went for 100 days.

Each day I sewed one block and posted it on Instagram.

Finally it is complete!

We quilted it on Saturday.

All that remains to do is the binding.

100 blocks in 100 days and a quilted top by day 105!

Maybe 2020 isn’t so bad after all, if it means I can finish a quilt like this!

You know, nothing pulling at me to get done and lots of time to quilt.

Otherwise,  .....

And I will say it again - 


(Except for the binding)
