I was finally able to start the piece and my goal is to have it finished by the end of April, so there's time to get it hand-quilted and ready for a show this September at the Catich Gallery at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa. Here is the work in progress:
Each strip takes about an hour to construct,
not including the time it took to pre-cut the pieces
A finished 24 x 24 inch blue square
This image (four - 24 x 24 inch squares) represents only a quarter of the finished piece
Finally finished the top on Saturday, April 12th, 2014. Shipping off to hand-quilters early this week in hopes of having it finished for the Catich Gallery show at St. Ambrose University (Davenport, IA) this fall. Fingers crossed!! My house isn't big enough to photograph the whole quilt, so thanks to Inspirations in Hills, IA for letting me borrow their design board to drape most of it for a pic.
