If that wasn't enough, I reached a major milestone with the assembly of Technicolor Galaxy (a.k.a the neverending BOM). After completing six of twelve spokes, I was sidelined by bias binding production. No matter how I looked at it, I couldn't get the fancy version I used last time to work. Screw it. I just those strips on the 45 and sewed them up. I've built my skills. I need to finish this thing!
In the same vein, I decided to ditch the glue basting for this assembly session. It works, but it's fiddly and time consuming. I've proven to myself that I can do it. Now I'm breaking out the Wonderclips!
Et voilà! All twelve spokes are assembled! Next step is to make some straight grain binding to join the spokes. Can I get this done for the end of September and achieve one of my FAL 2016 Q3 goals? Fingers crossed!
I'm linking up today with Let's Bee Social @ Sew Fresh Quilts, as well as Midweek Makers @ Quilt Fabrications. Pop on over and see what others are working on this week!
Nap time progress looks substantial! I like that you gave yourself permission to keep going on the Technicolor Galaxy quilt. 10 min per spoke sound pretty darn speedy!ReplyDelete
It's looking fantastic - every confidence you can hit that deadline!ReplyDelete
Wow! 1450 squares from the mailman - that's quite the haul, and going to be one big quilt. It's amazing how big a quilt that number can make. And your progress on Technicolor Galaxy is moving along nicely, even with some hiccups - don't give up now, you're almost done! Thanks for sharing the great eye candy on Midweek Makers!ReplyDelete
Technicolor Galaxy is one rockin' quilt! I love it! And you are one ambitious quilter to take on 1450 little squares! Looks like you are having fun, though, so I'm staying tuned to see what you come up with! Wendy at email@example.comReplyDelete
Are you getting into the head space to go back to work? Kudos on the getting the spokes done. So exciting!!ReplyDelete
The wheel is epic, obviously. I can't wait to see the visual impact of those low volume blocks. Is this going to be a quilt for you?ReplyDelete
Way to go! XOReplyDelete
Techicolour is looking pretty awesome. Looking at all 1450 squares on the table was a little overwhelming!! Good luck with your project.ReplyDelete
You've made a lot of progress! I'm excited to see what becomes of those low volume squares, I really like the 4patch in a square blocks! And you know I love the Technicolor Galaxy progress, you're getting so close!ReplyDelete
I hope you do finish it, it looks great!ReplyDelete
How productive are you! I can see that finishing the BOM quilt looks feasible for the end of Septmber. Best of luck!ReplyDelete
