Lined up for sewing........

I took the pieces off the design wall before any disaster could happen, like bumping into the wall and seeing the pieces flutter to the floor.  I showed the sewing procedure on the one I made a few weeks ago at the end of this post.  There was lightning and thunder last night so I had my machine unplugged and I will start sewing this together today.

I was doing some free motion quilting when a storm started here also. At least I got two sections completed before I stopped.

This is one type of project where good organization is mandatory! We had no thunder storms, but we did have a lot of drizzle yesterday with a little rain mixed in.

You are so sew organised - looking forward to seeing the end result - enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)

Good morning Wanda..Mother Nature sure put on a show last night, but not that much rain. There was only about 1/2 an inch when I checked the rain gauge this morning. We will be going to our son's house and he just put in a new pool that I can't wait to see. Not that I'll be going in, but I'm sure some of the grandchildren will. Enjoy your day today and I'm looking forward to seeing the photos tomorrow of the quilt top.

You re a wise woman! I once laid out a one-block wonder on a friends huge design wall when a gust of wind blew half of it down. Now I make sure her windows are closed.

Pretty batiks, waiting to see the top.

I read your post on how to take them off the design wall and then sew them correctly. I would love to say I understand it and could do it, but I truly doubt I did or can. It looks perfect the way you do it however.

I went back and looked at the photos again. I think I understand. It is not like the webbing sewing but row assembly and then columns by two. I have never sewn rectangles in rows or columns.

How big will this piece be? Just approximately? I can't ever tell from your photos because there's no scale. Not a complaint, just because I happen to be curious in this instance. You almost always say at some point, do I'm probably just impatient. LOL Thanks, Charlotta

Are the rectangles 2.5" x 4.5", with squares at the start of every other row? It is a wonderful design!

Wanda, could you please call me regarding this post? I hope you still have my phone number. Diane

It's a beautiful quilt Wanda. Your method of sewing is one that I use on occasion. We have a lot of thunderstorms in the summer where I am in Northern Arizona. My husband made sure that we had a whole house lightening protection system put in and I made sure that all the electronics have surge protectors or a UPS attached to them. Even so, I still unplug a lot of the electronics when we have a storm. I don't have to worry about power company surges since we generate our own power, but we can still have hiccups.
