I had a busy afternoon joining some of the blocks. In my original plan there was hand sewing involved. One of my quilting buddies or should I say one of the BLOCKHEADS (as we affectionately call ourselves) was over working on her quilt and happened to mention the word machine basting...she was probably tired of listening to me whine about the hand sewing.....and that got me thinking, as a result the blocks are now, totally joined by machine.
I like to drape the quilt to get another view. The design wall only gives you part of the picture.

I love love that I can do all this by machine....it's faster and probably stronger in the long run.
