I'm just a little worried about the quilting part of this quilt. I've made quilts before, but I've always hand tied them. I really want to try free motion quilting on this one. I've never attempted free motion quilting before. Everything I've read says practice, practice, practice. So, I guess I'd better make up some mini quilt sandwiches and get to practicing.
In the mean time, I made myself a design wall (4 yards white flannel, cut in half and sewn together) and hope to use it tomorrow to work on my quilt layout. I've done pretty well at arranging the strips randomly so far. We'll see how the block arrangement goes. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not a random sort of person.
I'm more of a "a place for everything and everything in it's place" kinda girl.
Wish me luck!
