Stuck in the middle of Christmas prep - though if I were to admit it, I haven't done a lot of Christmas prep, I'm still trying to come to terms with the calendar flipping to December - is a project that is very overdue. Remember the memorial quilt I made back in March? I wrote about it here.
Well, my client subsequently ordered a matching pair of bed quilts, again made with her father's shirts. Our communication was not the best, as I missed a key email and waited months for it. It was summer, and I figured we both were busy. oops. But now I'm buckling down and trying to get these done.
Each block measures 10.5" x 14.5". There will be 25 in each quilt. Yikes! I need to get moving!
Actually, as of this writing, I have most of the background blocks pieced.
I think the applique, and the project in general, would go faster without my assistant/supervisor.
She wants to be as close as possible to eye level, even if she can barely keep those eyes open.
Update- still Smokey
