Fun Laying Out a Quilt

Had fun last night at my Tuesday night sewing group. Dot showed us her paper pieced star wall hanging. Isn't it the fabric and colors she used.Joan spread out her blocks for 2008 Manteca Quilters Opportunity quilt. The library has a huge empty floor....perfect for laying out a quilt. She has all the blocks done and wanted to spread them out so we could advise her on the layout. This is the beginning of the block layout. This will be a King sized quilt.
It's progressing......lots of work....don't want two of the same colors side by side.....lots of people were at the library last night to give opinions as.....which blocks need to change places and there is too much of the orange here or there.
The final out come......there will be black between each block and applique between the rows. More pictures when Joan brings it back for more opinions.

I didn't get hardly any sewing done on my x blocks this last weekend as the weather was way too nice to set in the house and sew. So last night I cut out more blocks and will sew them together soon. Tonight I have to sew on my block of the month as Thursday night is our membership meeting for Manteca Quilters and why sew the block early when I can be sewing it the night before.

That quilt is going to be fabulous. I haven't made a quilt yet but I'm hoping to start soon with a t-shirt quilt.
