Beds can make the best "design walls". In most cases, I am designing for a bed quilt anyway, so this is the best way to try it out! I had laid out the blocks to the quilt on my Mom's bed while I was home in Newfoundland. Usually I like to label my blocks to ensure I put it together just as I planned. However, I have learned that my camera can be my best friend for these exercises. And my baby girl never misses a chance to join the fun!
This quilt is scheduled to be donated to my daughter's synchro skating team as a fundraising raffle. I am behind (as always), so now instead of a raffle for this year's season, it will have to be next summer/fall. Good news is I am further ahead than this picture would suggest. Two borders left on the top. Then I need to decide if I am going to quilt it or have it quilted. If only I owned my dream machine, the Tiara, this would not even be a thought :)
