My first part:
My Simplified Celtic Solstice is coming together this week. I have long strips sewn from top to bottom, with only six more to go. Then I will connect each strip. The design wall makes it possible to do it this way, and not make blocks first, and the seam pressing is more consistent for me (one column seams are pressed up, next column seams are pressed down, etc)
Here's the column strips so far:
And the right side of the picture below shows five columns that are all loose 3.5 inch pieces. The left side shows that a quilt really shrinks when seams are sewn, doesn't it? One more column is at the sewing machine. After these six are sewn, then it's pinning and sewing each long strip to the next one. But the end is near!
What's on your design wall today?
I love to check out what is on other quilter's design walls each Monday at the Patchwork Times blog (Here) There are lots of quilter's showing their projects here too, on a WIP link (Here)
