My Plain and Fancy quilt has now officially outgrown my design wall and is now officially the biggest quilt I have ever made! Yesterday I Instagramed (that’s a verb now, right?) the tiny piece hell I was in making my second batch of tiny sashing stars It has been taking me a whole day to finish a batch of 6 of these sashing strips, luckily, it is so worth it. They look amazing, but it is still a LONG time working on them. I now am half done with both my sashing and cornerstones.
So I decided that since I had enough sashing pieces to make my block rows that I would sew them together. As you can see, though this overflowed the capacity of my design wall, and if you are a careful observer, you will also notice that the rows are sideways. That was the only way I could hope to fit them up on the wall. I am really pleased with the progress and can’t WAIT to see it finished up. I think it will be something that we love for many years. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but I probably won’t be able to finish it before the end of the month, because Camp is coming up SO SOON! I am excited and a little terrified for that!
