And so the last we talked, this beautiful quilt was all in pieces. Laid across my cutting board, it wondered to itself, if indeed one day it would be come a finished quilt. Oh, why must a quilt journey take so long?
I set about reading the fabrics and mapping out their designation. Since I was only dealing with the first row, there didn't need to be much planning on the black and gray fabric placement...just black, gray, black, gray. So I set back and let the fabrics do the driving.
It would appear, they new exactly where they are going.
Row two however, would be a bit more tricky. I wanted to try to keep my blacks and grays distributed nicely in the rows, so for blocks 4, 5, and 6 I moved a bit slower.
I worked by pinning the columns of the blocks together to make sure that the fabrics in the block above it were not repeated in the one below.
Okay, time for a full disclosure confession...I didn't really take any pictures after this point. I got so in the groove making these blocks, the momentum building full steam ahead, that I finished the quilt top. Did I just have a premature quilt finish????
So I've decided to wait until after Row 3 is released to reveal my finished quilt top. All I can say is...I'm in Love.
If you are participating in the Fireburst Mystery Quilt, the first piecing instructions will be released on Friday, June 1st! Hope to see you there!
