Progress Report

Wednesday, May 24th, 2006

Here is the set up for working on the very large piece that has my attention. Mr. C fashioned these tables that are long enough to work on a section of this at a time. I am starting with the center, which will get lightly fused and then I will do the top and the bottom. I then hope to put it on the design wall and make any adjustments. After that I will give it a final fuse and start quilting. The crosses will be added after the quilting phase.

Here is the warm color end:

Here is the cool end. I started on this side, but decided I was not happy with my blues and greens so I dyed some more today.

Here are my new blues and greens so I can get back to my layout tomorrow.

I knew this would be a big job and now I am right in the middle of it and I am getting excited to finish the fusing and start quilting. The quilting is fairly simple so I am hoping I can do it on my Janome by rolling up each end while I quilt the other. I know that people have done king-size quilts on normal machines so I have high hopes!!

As a reminder, here is the original quilt that I did for my church in Santa Rosa. It was seen by the folks in Alabama and that is why I was asked to to this. This is 98 inches long and 18 inches wide.
