Now I am working on the right quarter of the top half of the quilt. This means the fabrics are stepping down one fabric at a time.
I also auditioned the center to be sure I like it by pinning some loops for the bottom half on the wall in the color sequence. I decided I liked it so I continued unpicking the rest of the loops.
To make the fabrics move down one at a time you look at the bottom 2 fabrics of the previous strip on the design wall and unpick the next loop at that seam (where my thumb is).
Now all of the loops for the top half are unpicked and on the wall (18 fabrics is 35 strips, 17 on each side of a center strip).
The bottom row of squares is the center row from top to bottom on the quilt.
For the bottom half of the quilt, look at the bottom square on the first row and you will pick that square totally out of a loop. You don't want 2 center rows and you do want the same fabric at the bottom of the quilt that is at the very top.
I unpicked 3 strips on the bottom half last night and quit for the night.
Years ago my son in law travelled to Australia and he brought me two tablecloths. Neither one is large enough for the back of the quilt but I figure out a way to use one or both on the back.
