I've been working away on my big green quilt. I can't show you the design but I'll just give you a sneak peek. It will consist of 96 of these strips, 4 1/2" x 8 1/2" which will sew down to 8" x 4".
They go from very dark to very light.
From high contrast to low contrast and everything in-between. I am working with eight shades of green, each with six gradations of dark to light. There are yellow-greens, blue-greens, olive greens and bright greens. The combinations are endless.
And look at how my scrap pile grows.
The final entry date for the show is early September, but I have a lot going on between now and then including two trips. So I want to get this done. The quilt will finish at 64" x 48" unless I decide to make it bigger.
When I started making the strips it took me about an hour to make one and now I have it down to about 35 minutes. I had a whole day at home yesterday so I got a lot done. Hopefully this weekend will be productive, too. So far I have 65 strips made out of the needed 96. Then they all have to sewn together then quilted, but now there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
I'm linking up again with Off the Wall Friday. Go see what everyone else is up to.
