Progress Report

I have about two thirds of my friendship top together at this point. The top row you see here is not yet attached to the bottom section, but the bottom section is all one piece now. Whew!

I still have the two columns of blocks on the right side to deal with (they're not visible in this picture). I may take all the parts off the sheet now and try to make them fit on the design wall proper. I need to see those righthand columns hanging straight and flat to see how they're going to fit with the rest of the quilt top. Wish I felt more energetic today. I don't know if it's the prolonged heat (ha!) or some new trick my body has come up with, but I'm not feeling quite up to speed this morning.

Meanwhile, DD bought this yardage some time ago and left it with me to create a "big girl" quilt for DGD#2.

Reading in Freddy & Gwen Collaborate Again has given me some ideas for the project. Working with all this black and white has me hungering for more color too. This will very likely be what I tackle when I finally have the friendship top done. DGD's birthday is early in September; surely I can finish a twin size quilt for her by then!


  1. Can't wait to see what you come up with for DGD's quilt, especially if it's Freddy and Gwen inspired! It's an adorable panel. Hope you feel up to finishing the BWPink one soon.

  2. what a great piece of yardage to work with next. I'm sure you'll come up with soemthing really fun

  3. Your friendship blocks are looking good! I think you're on the right track.

    The quilt for your DGD will be wonderful, based on that very cute yardage! That will be fun to incorporate with the Freddy & Gwen concepts. Can't wait to see what you do!

  4. The pink in your black and white blocks is wonderful. Gwen and Freddy's book is so colorful. I stumpbled upon it and fell in love!

  5. What fun fabric to have to build a quilt for DGD's birthday *VBS* And I must say, your sampler is looking spectacular. You're making it work spades! Hugs, Finn
    P.S. hope you are feeling better soon!

  6. This is delightful - wish I had had those images when my chidren were little! I was in my string and papier mache' on wood back then.
