All in a day's work!

I have been very busy today and you will get to see how:


Maybe washing strips and squares wasn't such a brilliant idea ... oh well!


There's always ironing! Or is that irony?


Ok, all pressed and sorted. Hm, either very strong contrasts or very little. This may be a challenge ...


No matter from which angle you look at it!


Anyway, moving right along ... after devising complicated numerical schemes of how to match the swatches without ending up with duplicate blocks, I decided to go for the easy approach of just laying it out:


Load 2 ...


These are 35 block grouped but yet to be assembled.


Somehow looks like quite a small lot. I wonder what size it will be ... 5 by 7 blocks? Or shall I go for 4 by 9? Because I have "back-up" ... since holding a master's degree in business administration doesn't necessarily mean one can calculate with two-digit figures (I mean, come on, I only got ten digits meself so really this is pushing it!)


Otherwise these will be the edges, the finishing touch. Ahem!

Love the fabrics you've pulled out of your stash for this! All that washing and ironing is probably the hardest part of this!

What a chore to handle all those strips and squares as they get washed and ironed! Amazing what us quilters will do. The fabrics are very pretty, and should make a really sweet quilt top..*VBS* Hope you are feeling better.

Beautiful fabrics! I can hardly wait to see what you do with them. Looks like a Blended Quilt to me. Washing and ironing strips and scraps is so much fun! NOT!(Been there, done that.)
