After lots of bending and twisting..... I got the graduation quilt all sewn together. The photo is not great - way too hot out yesterday late afternoon and a wee bit windy.
I had to have an empty house to lay out all the blocks onto the living room floor. I had sewn the color sets into one's, two two's and the rest into threes. Laying them out was a lot of bending and twisting on my back but it got done. Boy was it big! (70+x95+) Then it was pulling and sewing into strips and then sewing them together. I really hate sewing long rows together..... especially on the diagonal!
It needs pressing, trimming and then I'll have to find a backing and get it quilted. It will not be done in time for graduation June 16... but it will be done to fly up to Vermont with me in July.
