Good Fortune Update

Here I am, plugging away on my Good Fortune quilt. Despite having all of the units made, making the blocks feels like it is taking forever. Today I laid out what I had to try to come up with an alternate arrangement to make it a bit bigger. The winner? a double 9-patch. Here is the first of my 5 pieced sections.

I’ll have to see what I have to use in the negative space, perhaps a blue solid? But I figure this will give me an 88″ square quilt which is a nice queen size. Other options were a medallion style, in one case clustering the same blocks together instead of A-B.

The good news is that I don’t have to make any more blocks, I really wasn’t keen on going and making another 20 or 30 with these tiny (for me) pieces. I will have to make a few more border pieces though.

Did you vote for me in the PQ 10.2 challenge? What?! Well, go take a look right now! (I’m #85). Lisa, by the way did you get On Ringo Lake quilted this month? (looks away and whistles) Well, I have been kind of busy…

It’s -17 C today, a good day to stay home and sew. Stay warm and keep on stitching!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at the Needle and Thread Network and Needle and Thread Thursday with Kelli at My Quilt Infatuation.
