DWR quilt part III

Well my friends, all the little melon wedges and middle pieces are now done and pinned on my "design wall". It's so many of them, that the last row of circles kind of flows out on the floor LOL.

Tomorrow I am going to take pictures and ask for two pieces of advice, right now it's to dark to get any good ones. And I am sort of backing from using a wide sheet for backing and will check out Thousands of Bolts webshop to see if I can find some nice blue backing fabric to use instead. They are always very fast with shipping out orders, so I ought to be within the timeframe to finish it. Tihi, I even bout a roll of wrapping paper on sale, so I can gift wrap it nicely.

I am viewing that design wall with great anticipation - how on earth am I going to sew all these curved bits and pieces together and get them to lay flat??? Lucklily there is Mr Ripper there to help me if anything goes wrong. But I do wish I had a quilting friend on hand who could show me what to do.

Time to get dinner ready. Stay warm, it's still cold out there.
