Anyway, the Quilt a long starts on Monday, Here's the Details but it's a challenging quilt for me. I calculated about 540+ 1.5" squares, hand piecing, machine piecing, curves, embroidery, EPP but what a gorgeous quilt.
I'm thinking mine is going to be more wintery than springy, so some reds, whites, aquas and a mixture of grey skies and whites. It uses lots of low volume scraps and is generally a great scrap buster. The pieces are really small.
Over the weekend I decided to start on the hexagon portion as that usually takes me forever, they are 1/2" sided hexis and there are 30 of them. I was really surprised that after glue basting in the afternoon I managed to get them sewn up while watching Sunday night TV.
Next I'm going to prep the three embroideries, so I can fit some stitching in during appointments and on the long drive to Paris :)
