I just had to see how the fabrics will look together, so onto the design wall they went. These are the first 5 vertical rows (out of 12). The layout is not accurate. The quilt is long, doesn't fit here, so many of the strips are overlapping. The sections are not the same size, as this layout suggests. We get impatient, don't we? We can't wait till everything is together. We want some early peeks to see if our choices are OK.
OOPS --I spy one 4-patch block turned the wrong way.

I may finish the top by tomorrow. Just 12 rows similar to these. No outside border. It'll be a nice, non-challenging quilt to work on, if the weather turns nasty. We have rain forecast for a week, but only 30% chance most days.
Happy Birthday to our son. His 30-something birthday is today. He and his wife, their 2 children, and his sisters are back from a short trip to Spain, and I talked to them earlier today via Skype (7-hour time difference). This is one of my favorite photos of him taken about 25 years ago.
