I am so excited to be able to show some progress on my design wall today. I was able to complete Block 1 of the Layer Cake Quilt Along hosted by Moose on the Porch.
It was designed by an Alabama artist, Gene Black. Didn’t he do a great job? I haven’t sewn the applique circle down yet but will get it done this week when I sit down
to sew the applique on these.
These are the last four so I will be completing the applique (machine) on all 12, hopefully, this week. I also will be sewing these green diamonds together so that they can become a Christmas tree.
I have prepped the tree trunk but still need to get the background together and then a bunch of gifts and stuff for under the tree. All of that will be applique, too, so I will still be working on this for a couple more weeks, or more.
And lastly, the local quilt guild started setting up for the quilt show.
This is just the beginning of the set up. I hope to have more pictures on Wednesday. We will be meeting again on Tuesday, guild night, to complete the set up and then the show opens on Thursday afternoon. I will be working the show on Friday and Saturday (Thursday I will again be in FL) and then the take down begins. This the first real quilt show the guild has done and I am very impressed with how it looks.
Now, check in at Patchwork Times to see this week’s edition of Design Wall Monday. It’s a quilt show in progress.
