I'm finally ready to start piecing the bridge man. Woo hoo!
What started out as a very organized process soon became a mess on top of a step ladder. With one very precariously perched lamp for light. Did I mention he's on a temporary design wall that is starting to fall down? 900 little squares barely hanging on for dear life. I need to get this pieced before he dies a slow death on my floor.
And the leftovers....yes the left overs. Unfortunately I had to cut up an entire yard of fabric into 2" squares before I would know if it would work or not. I'm guessing I have a few thousand squares left over. I see one ...or more gray quilts with small squares in my future. Hmmm, with red crosses??
He started out with over 1,500 squares but I edited him a bit .....after arranging him 3 times and then pulling him down and starting over. Glad I made the changes and tossed the pattern I spent months making. Eyeballing the picture was so much easier for me and my "can't follow the rules" brain.
So where is he? My friend and I agreed to not look at each others quilts until they are finished and ready to turn in. And besides I go from liking him, to nervous laughter, to oh my gosh he is hideous I can't show this to anyone!! But all in all "Bob" is growing on me =) Hahahahaha, oh the joys of a good quilt challenge!
