I've laid out the seven sets so they are ready to sew.  Then I changed feet and thread and altered the brown pants that tried to embarrass me.  They fit perfectly now.

I agree, it is really nice to know how to do that finally.  I didn't want to give them away because they are very good pants.

I have sewn another set together but just really couldn't get into it.  I think i'll go read for awhile.

That is very true.  I got the nine patches started but didn't stick with it long because it was so hot in the craft room.  I'm glad I gave myself until the 19th.

That was not the next set it was the set I was working on.  Now I've sewn the last full set into strips and they are waiting for the iron and then cutting.  i'm almost out of bobbin thread again.  But that should be the last bobbin for the squares coming together.  I have no idea how many more it will take to piece it all together.

I got the half set done so now it is just cutting and sewing the final set and then discovering from Carol exactly what we are going to do to the sides I want to add to mine so that it will fit the sliding glass door.  I'm excited to be this far along.  I still need to cut the last set of 4 1/4 squares but I'll do that in the morning hopefully before it gets hot.

today I started the last set.  The nine patches are half done and the squares are not cut yet but it's early and if it doesn't get to hot today or cools down this evening I might see this part of the process done today.

I finished the nine patches, the squares, and the triangles and corner triangles that I hadn't counted on.  Now I get a break until early september yeah!

I read up on the next section.  It is putting the rows together diagonally.  I'm tempted to start but I'm sure there are tricks that I need to learn first.  I just really want to see what it all looks like when it is put together.  Maybe I'll just lay it out and take a look.

I took the blocks to quilting expressions today and laid out about 1/4 of it.  It isn't exactly what I wanted but it is close enough to satisfy me.  So I'm happy about that.  Quilting this is going to be a bear.

Thanks Tina.  Carol says she puts it together different than how it is done in the book.  I'm looking forward to learning her way.  The book way sound like it could be finicky.

Carol starts at the short end and works toward the center rather than starting at the center.  She suggests doing two of each and meeting in the middle but I didn't.  It was hard enough just doing one of each.  I'm about 1/4 of the way through and I have it layed out so I can reach each piece without having to get up so I figure it shouldn't take more than a week or so.  We'll see.

I think it will probably be closer to 14 days rather than a week.  I got one row down this morning and as they get longer they get more time consuming.  Either that or being sick the last couple of days really took it out of me.

Getting sick really does take it out of you. I hope you get back on track soon.

Definitely and it appears it isn't done with me yet.  But in spite of that I got 3 short rows done this afternoon.

This morning I did two of the medium length rows.  One more and I have the same number of rows done on each side with only the middle long rows to go.  I feel like I'm on schedule but it depends on how long it takes me to do the long rows.

I did two rows.  The one catches up the other side so they are even.  Then I went for the middle row.  There are actually 3 of them, talk about confusing.  These are the longest rows and I didn't want to have them come last and have to man handle the entire quilt to get them on.  I'd rather do sections and then sew the sections together. 

So progress was made today.
