The Race is on......

As some of you know my son is engaged to a lovely young lady and the
date is set for September 20th, 2008.
This is the basket of fabric I have choosen to make them a
Wedding Quilt.

Here are the first sixteen blocks.

I chose this pattern after seeing it on Ms. Goodneedles design wall.

Hers was rendered in red prints, assorted greens, blues, grays.

I liked the layout because the blocks could be arranged to allow for a center block for their names and wedding dates.

And now I am on a time schedule!
The second weekend in February the staff of the local quilt shop where I work part time,
is going on a quilting retreat!
All of us from both store! So much fun ahead and sewing time
with no interruptions
maybe a glass of wine,
girl talk
and eating!
(That we don't have to cook or dishes to wash!)
My goal is to have ALL 60 blocks pieced and the center 16 1/2" square completed with the names , date and other designs embroidered
and ready to be
sewn together and borders added.
Wish me luck!
