Curio Progress...

I made some good progress yesterday
on my Curio quilt, and am very pleased
with how it is coming along. 

The finished quilt top will have 
6 rows of 6 blocks...
for now, I am putting them together
in rows of three.
These half-rows will more than likely
be moved around as I complete more of them.

At this point,
I have half the blocks done.
I will probably do some more sewing today,
but I don't expect to finish another 18 blocks.
I would think, though,
that by the end of next weekend,
this quilt top will be completed.

There are 3 borders to add 
once I am done with the blocks.
I have the fabric for the backing...
if I remember correctly,
it will be (almost) a single fabric back.

I've been thinking about how I might
want to quilt this.
I'd like to try something new,
instead of my usual meandering stipple
(nothing wrong with it, just may
want to do something different).
Any and all suggestions are welcome!

This is not a difficult quilt to put together.
There are a lot of pieces...
and a lot of seams.
(which involves a lot of pressing!)
But, putting it together is just sewing.
What are you doing this weekend?
Whatever it is, I hope you are enjoying it!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

It is very pretty Jacque, What a ton of work. It looks like such a challenge. Is it for you?
Well today it is raining, but I have to go to the grocery store sometime today. My husband goes back to work after being off for two weeks.
I start school tomorrow too. Back to normal. :)Have a nice week too.

Good evening Jacque, your quilt is coming along nicely, love the flow of colors. I am hooking, and I am happy to report I have just completed my first small mat of the New Year. Greetings from Maine, Julie.
