Making Progress

Good news! I've been working on one of the quilts I've set myself the goal of finishing for the first quarter of the Finish-A-Long.  I had 25 blocks already stitched up, but decided the quilt needed to be bigger. :o)  I tend to do that with every quilt that would be lap-sized. It seems I want every quilt I make to at least be large enough for a twin-size bed. ;o)
 
 
Since sewing the first blocks this past summer, I've added a few new fabrics to my stash that I thought would work well as new additions.  I stitched up 6 new blocks to help increase the finished size and am adding sashing strips between.  Which means, once borders are on, my quilt will fit a twin-size bed. Yay!
 

Here's to progress! ;o)
Wishing you a happy start to your week.

That’s looking good Katherine!

My finish-a-long projects are all hand pieced ones, so I don’t make much progress.

What a fabulous quilt. I love that blue and red colour scheme. Like you I think a quilt should at least fit on a bed if possible.
