This is my blueprint for the quilt top I showed yesterday. I am a visual person and even though I could have figured in my head how many pinwheel blocks I would need, I like to do a quick sketch to double check the number. This way I can also jot down the measurements of all of the pieces so I don't make a mistake in cutting.

Meeting my goal.........
Two weeks ago I said I was going to try to get 3 quilts quilted each week, starting with the small ones. I didn't quite make it but I was close. I quilted 2 baby quilts, 1 lap size quilt, 1 wallhanging, and finished the border quilting on a second wallhanging in progress. Two of them are waiting for binding, 3 are totally done. The 6th project however was a start (surprised?) which I showed yesterday, one new completed top. I started out with 53 quilt tops needing quilting, I quilted 4 of them and sold 14 of them. That leaves 35 needing quilting plus one added-36 total. I know when I get to the large ones I won't finish 3 a week but I think I have a good start. I cut the batting for 3 more on Saturday before I put away the 30 yard roll to prepare for the art quilters today.
