Almost a Quilt Top

Hello!  :)

More progress to show!  :)  Last week I managed to sew the strips together. I forgot to take pictures of that step but you can see them here . . .


Yes I actually got the rows and strips all sewn together this past weekend.  :)  It's really hard to get a good picture since it's so big. It's even harder when your dog keeps wanting to get in the picture.  ;)


I think he's showing his approval.  ;)  It really could use a few more dog hairs added to it anyway (rolling eyes). Here's a closer view of the top half . . .


And a closer view of the bottom half . . .


The next step are the borders and then the quilt top will be finished!  :)  I'm not going to follow the original design for the borders. I'm going to do something different. Just because I can!  ;)  Stay tuned!  :)

Until next time . . .
