I've continued with my goal to finish one quilting thing each day. Today I got the vertical lines pieced. After I lay my quilt out, I fold over sets of blocks and then stack them in vertical column piles. I can "chain stitch" entire columns and then stitch columns together until the entire top is pieced.
Tomorrow is ironing and horizontal seams . . . maybe. I may need to pause and tackle that mountain of laundry. The back is going to be pieced from leftovers of the fat quarters . . . that idea has been percolating and evolving all day. I can't wait to tackle it!
