The quilt top was assembled this past weekend starting on Friday, January 9. A small group of us gathered at our friend Pam's and spent a wonderful weekend sewing. Oh yes, there was laughing, eating, lots and lots of sewing and even a pirate song was sung. Bonnie arrived at Pam's on Wednesday night, I arrived on Thursday night and Holly arrived early Saturday morning.
The blocks were laid out with the sashings and block placements were worked out. Because of the size and the number of blocks, it was decided to make the secondary smaller quilt. The final borders were added mid-afternoon on Sunday and a quick photo was taken. Holly has taken it home and will be quilting it on her long arm. I can't wait to see what she does with it.
I went to see Marlene on Monday, January 12 and took a photo of the quilt top to hang in her room.
