Two down....

Twenty-seven to go! Tonight I finished ironing the seams open and then I sewed the centermost vertical seam to make one big quilt top. Post haste - I sewed the first horizontal seam. Then the second one. Then I hung it up and admired it for awhile. It's amazing what a few less raw edges will do for ya.

Long week, slow progress but progress nontheless.

November 18, just after midnight

silly me! I thought I'd have this all pressed, joined in the middle and maybe a couple rows sewn across tonight. ooops. Guess that would have required getting home earlier, eh?

The current quilt is now in two pieces with all the columns of squares sewn together. It was tempting to sew the two halves together but I know from past experience that it's easier to iron the seams down if you do it in chunks. Iron both sets, sew the middle seam, press that and move on.

I'm thinking it looks good. Yes. Good..

I've got about 3/4 of the squares for this quilt sewn together in columns. Here's how it looked hung up last night.
