Quilt progress



I took all my quilt blocks to my friend's house on Tuesday so we could lay them out together (she's good at that balancing thing, thank you, C.)

After getting them all out I decided not to include the ones with the dark green. Even though they don't look too bad in the pictures the green leans toward the blue rather than the yellow like all the rest of the greens. So we eliminated those, thus creating a need for more shopping. Oh, too bad. ;-)

You can see the dark green a little better in this pic.

Here are a couple pictures of the piles of blocks. It's amazing to me how a pile of blocks can become a whole queen size quilt.

Today I was able to stop at a quilting shop (35 minutes from home) to get that additional fabric for the strip sets. It will also be for the quilt binding.

Some sad news...my local quilt shop closed on Monday. I got the email about it on Tuesday, so there was no saying goodbye. Although I did reply to her email with good wishes. Now to go find another shop closer than 35 minutes. I think I have a lead, however. Happy quilting.

Hey, I know that house!

It was fun laying out your blocks. Thanks for bringing them! Can't wait to see pictures of the final product.

And, where is the quilt shop that is less than 35 minutes away?
