Fall Quilt Progress
I've made a ton of progress on my Fall quilt! Monday I spent a good 5 hours sewing and got the bottom half completely sewn and a good start going on the top half. This large block design is a dream to sew - it would be a perfect for beginning quilters. I'm finding that part of the reason it is sewing up so well is because I measured and cut very accurately. I bought a 6x24 quilting ruler for this one, and I can't believe I ever went without it before! I got fairly technical with my block labeling. Everything is numbered and lettered to ensure it gets put in the correct spot and so far no mistakes.
Overall I am really pleased with my progress, and I should be able to finish the top half and get the whole top completed today. I had made a goal for a start to finish time of two weeks, so it would be ready before the weather starts to really cool off. Hopefully it will be on my bed sooner than I had planned!
