WIP Wednesday - Feb 13, 2013
The Grannie's Scraps quilt top is progressing. I recently finished making all the square-in-a-square (aka diamond-in-a-square) blocks and have sewn them into strips for the border. When I designed this quilt in EQ7, I had picked a forest green for the solid border strips, but when I went to pull the fabrics that I needed for this project I couldn't find any in my stash. I did find two dark rose/burgundy fabrics so that's what I'll use.
My design wall is occupied so I laid out the borders and quilt interior on the pressing table to make sure the proportions and colors work. Next step will be the cutting of the burgundy fabric and then attaching all three borders.
I'm holding off working on any other projects until this top is complete. I know myself well enough that if I set it aside now, it could be weeks before I take the time to work on it again. At this point, I just want to get it done so I can move on. I have another quilt, the Log Cabin throw, that needs to be quilted this month and I figure it will take me at least a week to do that on my domestic machine.
I'm linked up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday.
