Quilt Top

Quilt Top Piecing Complete

I have worked steadily. Too much rain for me to do much other than stay inside and sew.

I did have to go back to the fabric store last Saturday to get some extra fabric to complete the sashing.
Since I did not really have a pattern and was designing as I went....what could I expect.

You can see on the bottom left hand corner where I was testing options for sashing the quilt.  Also,  it looks funny because I had not completed the  bottom row of squares.

The small strip of the tan fabric had not been in the original plans and also I had mis-cut a strip of the orange causing me to be short.  Thus the trip on Friday.

But I am pleased with the results.

Next comes the quilting. 
I have never tackled machine quilting anything larger than a placemat.
But, there is always a first.

My dining room table is large and I put a mat over it to get busy putting together the 'batting sandwich."
I have the sandwich spread and pinned.  Now, What next.
Need some time to THINK!
