What have I been doing!
sewed a few one yard flannel quilt tops - I inserted a contrasting fabric or bands of fabrics and straightened the edged. Then found backings for them.
then spliced some batting pieces for them. They are now ready to go to church for tying! Ihave a lot more flannel to use, but it is a startM

It's great for backing, or even batting!! My grandma always used it to back her "comforts" she made.
Well, what I have is not so great for backings. It is mostly one yard or less pieces. And very different patterns and colors. So I am making baby quilts that are cute and nice and soft.
Thanks for all the kind words, ladies. It does feel good to get a few more off the pile.
I'm sure they'll be appreciated!
This table is gigantic and the quilt was too big to lay out. The wind was blowing too hard to even consider an outside shot. I got the borders on the DWR I was working on at retreat. The borders will drop off the sides of the bed. I just put a 2" cream at the top. I pieced the borders, then cut to size with a 45 degree angle and did Y seams. They came out spot on first try!
Now I need to get a wide back fabric and get this quilted.
What a dramatic photo you have given us .... spectacular camera angle that shows everything! What a jawdropper.
I called my husband in to see what a gorgeous quilt you are working on and what a "bird's-eye view" you were able to get with that machine in the upper left corner.
Thank you Judy. That is one big quilt with a bazillion curved pieces and I am just happy to finally have it in one piece. The machines in the photo are the big industrial machines my DBIL has to make his products. I used domestic machines to make my quilt though.
I've finished enough units to start the assembly process of Inner Cube. Not all of these are sewn together but they are pinned in their correct placement.
If you see little yellow or green labels, that's to tell me what color combinations the small Tumbling Blocks are. There are VERY specific combinations that go in VERY specific locations. You can't just toss them up there willy-nilly.
Right now, I'm working on getting all the color Tumbling Blocks sewn into the white-with-black-polka-dot star wreaths. I have the color combos written down and pinned to the wreaths, so it's just a matter of sewing the little 1" diamonds together in the correct color order to make the Tumbling Blocks then sewing them into the wreaths.
Then, comes the part where you REALLY need to pay attention to the layout: **what color combinations go where**. This pattern continually challenges me and isn't one that I can construct while paying attention to something else!
