Spent most of Saturday under a quilt in my chair with terrible head cold. I seem better this morning so I am in the studio. No, that's not a cigarette in the smilies mouth (I quit 3 1/2 years ago). It is suppose to be a thermometer. I seemed to run fever for the day. Was not flu, but, sure wasn't fun. Still need boxes of tissue close by.
All of the components of the Double Nine Patch are together. Today I will spend my time putting all of the components together. Sometime this evening I will have this top together. I did not think that I would EVER finish the 3 inch nine patches. This just goes to show that little snippets of time can work well on a large project like this.
My Circle Templates arrived yesterday so I will be ready to quilt this top in 'Baptist Fan'. I plan to practice using these on some muslin before I begin with the actual top. I'll let you know how things go.
QUESTION: Should I start at the top of the quilt and work down? Should I fully stabilize the quilt and work from the bottom up? What would you do?
