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!
