Scrap Quilt Update


Today was a day off here in Italy so...I worked on my scrap quilt again...
I've started to piece all the nine patch blocks...


Lately I sewed some little things like pouches, bags...but...it was too much time that I didn't work on a quilt so...I'm very excited!!!!


I 've started this morning to piece, had a break for fix lunch and then...go ahead sewing for all the aftenoon...


I made a total of 40 nine patch blocks (in the pic you can see 9 rows but they are 10...), plus 40 plain block for a total of 80 blocks...
As I decided to try the "As you Go" method for quilting my quilt, I sewed all the blocks in rows, assembling together 4 big pieces of 20 blocks each...


So now, as the 4 parts are not so big, it should be easier to quilt them...
Hopefully...it will not be too much tricky to join them together after they are quilted but...I can't know this until...I'll do it...


Anyway, I love the way it turned out mixing and matching all these colorful fabrics...
I've had lot of fun today working on the quilt and...it keeps my mind busy...
I strongly need this...not a nice period here...
I'll keep you posted about the quilting and assembling part...
I wish you all a lovely day!!!!!
Love, Dany.
