I couldn’t help myself

I really wanted to get an idea of what my quilt would look like so I made rows L and M. Not without problems I might add.  It is crucial with this quilt to make sure that the finished block and sashing measure correctly (4 and 1/2 inches and 1/2 an inch respectively) so that the triangle borders will fit.


They still have to be joined together but I think the quilt is going to look good. I think I’m going to have to find a better way of taking photos of the rows, I had to stand on a chair for this one, any ideas out there?


  1. Wow! It's going to look gorgeous! :) Nice to see a couple of rows together. Can you hang some batting/wadding on the wall and stick it to it?? Might be easier to do standing up pictures rather than chair ones!

  2. Looking great. Getting them up on a wall might make it easier. A flannel tablecloth thumb tacked to the wall is what I use. It must be exciting to start seeing it all come together.

  3. These two look great! It's going to be just beautiful. I have all my rows joined, and love to have it out on a bed just to look at.

  4. Hello Pip
    Haven't done much visiting since we got home but have read all your posts. its been fun to see all those blocks taking shape - from some of your remarks I guess it hasn't all been fun for you tho lol
    The two rows of light and dark blue look great and like the others I have a feeling that is going to be a fabulous quilt when its finished.
    Merry Christmas Pip - best wished for 2011 and heres hoping all your wishes come true
    Take care

  5. Oh my gosh that looks BEAUTIFUL! I would have done the same....WOW, and Merry Christmas Pip!

  6. Wow Pip,

    That is looking amazing, you should be so proud. Beautiful :-)

    Have a wonderful Christmas.


  7. Oooh, I'm getting a good case of 'blue and white' envy! It's going to be gorgeous!

    Best wishes for a lovely Christmas - looks like the weather is going to be fairly kind to us so enjoy it!

    Cheers - Joolz

  8. Oh boy... how exciting ! It is just wonderful. This is a tried and true method of quilt photography, but when it gets really big, you will have to stand on a ladder instead of a chair ! Caution is advised...

  9. Your fabrics look amazing together, Pip.

    I think I'm almost as anxious as you to see your blue and white baby complete. One of these days I'll get back to my jane {I hope}.
