More parts, center changed...........

Rosemary and I basted her quilt in a very short time.  We even had time to go out to lunch afterwards. It is so nice to have the 2 large tables clean and ready for a basting job.  I'll do one of my own in a few days too. Last night I sewed 7 more groups of pieces for blocks.

I took out both the red print square and the light square and added 2 more pieces like the rest.  In the book the center starts spiraling in a square pattern and I have mine set up as a rectangle shape.  I'll try it the other way when I get more pieces made and can do the real layout.

I would love to have room for tables put together to baste on - no basement here though and not enough room

Envious of your tables. I love the rectangle spiral. I ordered the Karen Stone book, although New York Beauty is not in it. Darn that EQ.

Looks much better without the squares.

Interesting layout. Glad you are having fun.

I like the light center! It seems to draw you into the pattern spiraling around...nice lights. Hugs, Julierose

I like this layout better. The center block goes much better in this.

This is going to be stunning. I just repurposed a UFO that was originally a stack and whack to Red Center so i can work on it before i move. It will be moss greens and purples. Contrast in color more than values.

Fun prints combined with your "exuberant" fabrics on the blocks you stitched last night.

I really like the rectangle center vs. the square thus far. But I know you will come up with another center before this is all over. (*._,*)

I love the rectangular spiral - it really is fun to follow it around!i

What size are the blocks? So pretty. Is it easier to baste on tabletops or to put on your longarm and baste that way? Just curious.

I have two tables I sit up on the driveway to baste on. It is OK except in the heat of the summer.
