It's coming along!!
As you can see I almost have the top put together!! I still need to put on the outside rows and columns, but I am so excited. Yesterday I made my husband go with me to the fabric store to pick out the red that goes in between. He loved it (just kidding) but he was a very good sport and I appreciated his help. Although he didn't like or choose this red. But I think it was a good choice.
So the debate how is if I should make the outside rows and columns thicker or not. Or if I should just make the top and bottom thicker and keep the sides the same thickness. I will mull it over today and get my husbands opinion tonight and keep going and going and going.
I have just realized that this is my first lap size, adult quilt. It is a lot bigger and nerve racking to make than the little baby blankets I make. But I am enjoying choosing the fabrics and seeing it come together. I want it to be perfect. Maybe I am too much of a perfectionist while sewing, but I think that is a good thing, don't you?!!!
