"STITCHING MENDS MY SOUL"

WOW = Working On Wednesday

I should have said assembling packages yesterday.  I gave a few gals a start! Today I'm assembling rows, 8 of 19 so far.  I don't have all my blocks yet, as 2/7 of this quilt is in the mail on the way to me.  I won't attach the rows to each other until I have them all made, in case I want to switch things up.
I love, love, love this quilt!  Can't wait to get it all together.  By the way, the pattern is called Across the Spectrum, and the original in McCall's Quilting, Jan/Feb 2011, was put together in rainbow or color spectrum style.  I love it scrappy.  To ensure it is really random, the only thing I'm doing is making sure no two blocks identical are next to each other.  There are very few identical fabrics in this quilt so far.  I'm just taking a solid and a criss-cross and sewing them together, however they come.  What fun!

Oh my gosh! That's fantastic! I think I'm going to have to go ahead and pull out my blocks and use them as leaders/enders to start putting mine together too! Just beautiful!
