Monet Lady Panel
This section is 23" x 108" and has 2484 squares (one inch finished).
I have the upper left section (top of umbrella and sky) laid out (fused in place), as well as the lower left (boy and lower skirt.)
Still to do: The center left sky section. Plus I need to add background section on both the left and right of the main design section.
The original cross-stitch is 118x148 and I'm reducing it down to 70ish x 108 (7500ish squares! Egad!) but can add as much background as needed to look right up to 90" wide. I started this with a Quiltsmart grid product that was marked for 1.5" squares, but miscalculated when I ordered. I found a 1" grid interfacing by Pellon at JoAnne's that I will use to finish up. It's less conveniently marked, but I can buy additional and be back at the sewing machine in 30 minutes.
Looks like today is shaping up to be a Sitting-on-the-back-of-a-Harley-designing-quilts-in-my-head kind of day, so it may be a week or more until I have more to show on this project.
