My sister-in-law, my cousin, and I got together a couple of days ago to (finally) assemble the blocks for our town fundraiser quilt.
The three of us had fun arranging and rearranging these blocks on the design wall. Trying to balance colors, value, and pattern made for an interesting puzzle. It was especially fun considering that in order to reach the blocks on the top row, one of us would have to climb up on a table. Unsurprisingly, the top row was the first one we agreed was perfect the way it was...
The blocks were made by many different contributors, at many different levels of experience, so it was a bit of a surprise that they were close enough to target size that they went together easily.
Sashing was on, and the borders were cut and ready to attach when I had to head out.
It's now on its way to the quilter and will be ready to be raffled. Hurray!
Meanwhile, this afternoon I cheered over this:
All the Allietare blocks are now together, and I've already got some
strips cut and ready for the inner border, and some fabric set aside for
the outer border. Another hurray! Close enough to done!
And these little monkeys kept hooting at me that I hadn't taken their picture yet. I tried to tell them that I was pretty sure that I had, but they said nope nope nope, take one now now now.
So I did. Can't argue with monkeys.
Well, you can, but they just ignore you. And swing from the ceiling fan while they do it...
