Design Wall Monday 11/02/15

I got a lot of work done on my Farm Girl Vintage blocks this weekend.  I've been cutting out blocks during the week, and then they are all ready to sew on the weekend.  This has been working out well for me right now.

I had this postage stamp block cut out for a few weeks, and it was nice to have time to sew it together.  The squares finish at 1", and for me the key is to sew them together very slowly.  It gives me a lot of control as they go through the sewing machine, and there is no shifting.  It works like a dream and I didn't have to take anything out.

 Below is the view of my design wall with all the blocks I have made so far.  I'm bummed out that I couldn't keep up with the sew along, but I don't have too far to go.  My goal is to finish the top by the end of the year.

Be sure to check out Judy L's blog to see what everyone is working on today!

Your quilt looks great. I need to make the sashing for mine. The finished quilts are so cute.
