This is going to take FOREVER!

I worked today and got the four patches done. Here is the stack of four patches once I got done with the sewing, but before cutting them apart and ironing them for the last time.

I am now in the process of arranging the pieces into the blocks. I need 20 blocks. I do not have enough room on the portable design wall. I wonder if I should bring back my poor man's design wall. These blocks are huge! Only the bottom one is fully assembled.

Three down, 17 to go.

And with 7 hours put in today, I am at 70 hours so far for the month. God, that is just amazing to me to have 70 hours in so far!

That looks great! I love your fabrics. Talk about poor mans design wall....I bought the biggest vinyl table cloth I could find and punch pinned it to the wall with the flannel side out. Cost me a buck....I'm so cheap..giggle.....

That is too cool - it looks similar to the quilt i just did - and yet different construction. I love those colors!! I need to get away from the blue/brown for a bit - red/rose would be good. Summer Sunshine is SO bright I will be glad when it is done and in use rather than making my eyes go buggy under the needle.

God, I just LOVE that quilt. Those fabrics rock. It makes me sad that I didn't buy more yardage from that line. Oh well..there is always better fabric on the horizon
