Making Progress

Ok. So, I am currently in the process of collecting all the blocks for the school's auction quilt. As they come in, I am starting to press them out and square them up, and at the same time I have begun the task of cutting up the strips for the sashing. I'm running a tight ship here, so multi-tasking is a must!

Now, it has come to my attention that I have yet to reveal the mock up of the quilt. So sorry! Here it is in all of its glory!

I ended up not finding the Moda Marbles Deep Olive for the sashing, as I had planned. So instead I decided to go with Moda Marbles Summer Green. It is a little bit brighter than depicted in the image above; my only concern though, is that I still haven't seen it against the "girl on the fence" block that is located towards the center. I think there is enough variation in the color that it will be ok. I'm crossing my fingers though... just in case. Then I'm thinking I'll bind it with Moda Marbles in Burgundy... but I'll wait until I'm much further along before I decide.

Linking up with Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday.


  1. It´s a great design, I had to read more about the quilt in your blog. Great idea. Are you sure that printed pictures will be OK after washing? As a teacher I´m thinking about some "memory quilt" because nex year is the last one for my class. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow! What a labor of love :-) Folks are going to go nuts for this quilt. Thanks for stopping by WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!


I can't wait to hear from you!
