Today was a good day to work in the studio, since it was cold with snow on the ground. I was working on piecing my son's quilt together.
Last night I started playing with the blocks and things seemed to be lining up a little off, so I took the seam ripper and broke up the blocks and decided to re-square all the blocks. That seem to do the trick. By the end of the evening I had the first set of 9 blocks together and it was nice and square.
So this morning I started getting the rest of blocks set up into sections. The rest of the sections were just a little more tricky, but fun to work with due to the size of the blocks and working them around the t-shirt blocks.
Some of the sections needed to have blocks trimmed down or have sashing pieces added them.
After each long sections were completed I would check them to make sure they were keeping squared up.
I was very pleased with the overall of the look and size of the main part of top when It was finished. Once I had the top done, I did a final measurement to calculate the borders and backing to get them ordered.
Borders and backing should here by the end of next week, I hope so I can get this finish. Now, Tomorrow, I think I will get the border on the Jelly Roll Race and get the backing ready for quilting.
Hope all have a good day of Quilting on Saturday!
