Project Progress. . .

I got busy Saturday & Sunday working on my quilt project. Sometimes it's hard for me to get started with a project, but once I get started I usually keep working until the job is complete.




Here is all the fabric before it is washed & dried. . .



All ironed & ready to begin cutting & sewing. . .



Sunday afternoon I cut & sewed the first 6 quilt blocks which took about 1 1/2 hours. . .


Here's a closeup of 3 squares. . .



I was pretty rusty & out of practice with the sewing, but soon discovered it's kind of like riding a bike, once you get started it's OK! I'll work a little bit each day this week & see if I can get it all finished.

Carol... How pretty it looks already! Please keep us posted! I'm trying to decide if I want to try quilting. I come from a long line of mountain women who quilted but it stopped at my mom. I would love to see our tradition continue, but I need a little inspiration. Thanks for keeping us up to date on your progress..Debbie
