WIPs on Wed - July 27

I'm still making melons.  And I likely will be for some time to come.  These are stacks of 10, and when I realize that's 900 pieces that I've sewn together it does feel like a lot more progress.  

I'm not sure how big the quilt will end up.  I lost track of the pieced strips at some point, but think that's about 1/2. 

Remind me again why I set myself up to make things that require tons of piecing. Ack.

Ah now, you decided to create this masterpiece, we all go through the 'why have I done this' stage at some point. But, think of the satisfaction you will have upon completion. Keep going, it will be worthwhile.

That has certainly taken you a lot less time than if I were doing it! I love the way all those blues go together. Maybe you are making this to inspire your fans?

However big your quilt turns out, it is sure to be gorgeous!! The blues and purple look great!

I hear you on this one. I have a quilt in process (my flower block quilt) that I've decided will take me a year to do. So, maybe throw a quick one or two into the mix--ones that only take a couple of months!

Having said that, I think the colors indicate that this quilt will be gorgeous, so press on, don't get discouraged and we'll check in to see your progress!
