Quilt Progress

Rob was out of town for a few days this week/weekend so I spent a lot of time on the quilt. Jordan volunteered her services so I put her to work. I taught her how to press the pieces and cut the strips. She loved the ironing, so she spent most of her time doing that.

I finally got all my pieces cut and laid out on the carpet so I could see what it would look like. I am still not sure if I like this material, but for a first quilt I guess it is ok. Here are all the stacks of pieces ready to be assembled.

Here is the quilt all laid out on our Living Room floor.

The two older girls helped me lay it out on the floor. They seemed to really enjoy it, which was a good thing cause I was going cross eyed after the first 30 min. On my next quilt I will enlist their help even more.
