I Am a Quilter

My Adventures in Quilting

WIP Wednesday – 6/18/14

First I want to apologize for not having written in a few weeks.  *insert a million excuses here*  My bill-paying-job has been keeping me pretty busy and I have been working on a few designs of some small projects as well as quilts.  I’m just not ready to reveal them yet.  So, I thought I’d give you an update on my “for me” project.

I finished all of my pieces and strips and now it’s time to assemble the stacks.  Remember, I’m not following the pattern exactly.  I just wanted have some fun with it.

This is the point I got it to when I decided to assemble what I have and see the final size before I add any more layers.  I know that I’m going to lose 1/2 inch from each piece which adds up to somewhere around 7″.  Since I haven’t decided on a final size, I’m going to sew this together, see how it looks, and go from there.  I like how it’s coming together so far.

Here is where I had to take a look at the size it was ending up and make a decision.  Since I only have the pieces sewn into pairs, it will be easy to insert more layers to make it taller without losing composition.  I have decided that I need to add about 10 finished inches.  This could take some time.  But it will be worth it.
