All Shook Up
Yesterday I was faced with a decision: Iron a mile of fabric, cut a backing from it and load the quilting frame or start the last kit. Well what would you do?? Here are some of the blocks. I have made 4 out of the 6 sets of 6. The most complicated part was cutting. There are so many pieces of similar size that I was stressed about mis-cutting. I'll know if I did when I get to the last blocks. The four on the top left are placed according to the diagram. I think it will be a very nice quilt when it's done. It won't take long to sew it all together once I get the last 12 blocks assembled. Then I'll cut the backing for both quilts. The backing piece is a tiny bit shorter than I thought and I may have to piece one of the backs with strips from the front. That always adds interest to the back so it's not a problem.
This quilt is called All Shook Up. I'll have to get the book from my studio before I can let you know the designers.
