Only one week left in January so I'm really focused on finishing this first UFO of the year. Turns out my quilt math was a little off in my last post, I actually needed:
Small blocks: 160
Medium blocks: 96
Large blocks: 15
Here are all the blocks, (finally) completed and ready to go.
Today I spent some time laying out the blocks on Klara's design wall. On reviewing the photo below I can see a few changes that need to be made but I'll start sewing together the rows to make the quilt top this week. With input from my quilty pals, I've decided to leave just one orange block in the quilt. It looks busy with all of those wonky blocks! Probably best not to look at it if you're feeling dizzy.
The green painter's tape on the right side of the wall is where the quilt exceeded the space on Klara's design wall. The quilt will be about 90" x 90" which is a good-sized quilt. Here's a close-up of the layout surrounding the orange block:
One more week to finish and then on to February's UFO - hope next month's UFO leaves me a little more time to get some other projects done.
I wore a new t-shirt today and no one laughed as hard as I did about it - I think it's funny as hell but no one else seemed terribly amused. What do you think?
