I cut my pieces 4.5 in. wide and 6.5 in. long. Before borders, the quilt will be 72 in. wide by 84 in. long. There is nearly an equal amount of fabric used for each print.
All of the rows are pieced, and I only have 4 more to sew onto the top. Then it's time for borders (probably only one).
You are not going to believe me, but I only had to buy ONE of these fabrics in the store. The rest were in my stash. Which just says how ridiculously huge my stash is.
So that's the main event in the sewing room this week. In other news, I'm binding the Star Blossoms quilt. I'll be sending it to its new home by the end of November.
One of my favorite modern quilting blogs is Crazy Mom Quilts Crazy Mom Quilts Blog. She has a regular feature she calls Finish It Up Friday. I don't have any quilts finished today, but here are some things I actually got done this week.

Yesterday, I canned six pints of beets. My husband won't eat them, but I'm fond of them, and six jars will be about all I need this winter.
In spite of all the fall things to do this time of year, like canning and baking and going out to Holy Hill to look at the leaves, I am trying to make time to sew every day. It really shows in how much I can get done, and how happy and productive I feel.
What are you working on this week? I hope you have time to sew every day.
