I have been arranging my pieces to dark and light pairs and sewing them together. I already put some pairs together as well, and ironed the seams to make the arranging easier.
The brown can be seen at the lower edge in the middle, paired with the checkered cream and olive flannel. Last night I spread all my ironed pairs and fours on this dining table and made the preliminary arrangement. It would be nice to know a name for this pattern, so please comment if you know one. I took the pattern from a library book (forgot to copy the name), and it is just titled "Inspiration Quilt or Nancy-Quilt".
My sister Maija has also joined in this challenge. Sincle she has not (yet) a blog of her own, I promised to show her pictures and report her progress here. She is more a weaver and a knitter. A couple of years ago she was staying with me for a couple of days during her visit to Finland, and I introduced her to our sewing group, a roll cutter, ruler and a cutting mat. Without a support group, her quilting career has not yet really started, but I hope this publicity will help her finish her first quilt ever.
