I made a huge amount of progress on the quilt. I had to take apart some of my rows and use those fabrics to add on to each row to make them all 50 pieces wide. I managed to get those all sew together which in the picture is the section at the top that is 13 rows long. Then I altered the 8 row section to make those rows 50 wide. That's the middle section shown. I did not get them added on to the top section yet. I still need to modify the lower section of 12 rows. My design wall is 8'x8' and as you can see what I have so far pretty much covers the wall! Sorry for the bike in the picture. I still need to add 7 rows which is 350 pieces. Thank you to everyone so far that has volunteered to contribute scraps to help me out. I plan on having a drawing for anyone who sends me some scraps. If you are interested in helping me out just leave a comment or e-mail me.
Here is a close up so you could see the different fabrics. How about that 30's fabric with the aqua dots and the kitty cat! There are all kinds fabrics: food, fish, Xmas and Holloween images, Bugs Bunny, batiks, hand dyes, African, and calicos just to name a few. I have never had the quilt hung up on a design wall before yesterday and it was so fun to see all the different fabrics! As I looked at them a flood of memories invaded my brain. So many quilts have been made from all those fabrics!
