My quilt is slowly coming together. The pieces are now so big that they drape over the ironing board. They are so big that I call what I'm doing "fabric wrangling".
Row by row the strips of blocks are being sewn together.
I tediously and carefully pin the seams together in hopes that they will line up perfectly. While transporting the rows to the sewing machine or ironing board I wear them draped around my neck like a boa.
Then the double rows are sewn together to become quadruple rows and I wear them like capes. I have to be careful to not trip myself while moving between the sewing machine and ironing board.
My thoughts at the sewing machine:
Will these seams line up?
Yeah, they lined up!
I've also discovered that not breathing makes the tricky parts go better. Luckily there haven't been too many tricky parts to this quilt.
If my calculations are correct I only have 6 more long seams to go and then I'll be on to the next phase of quilt construction.
