WIP Wednesday - ALYOF November Goal

Today's WIP is another A Lovely Year of Finishes goal.  November's goal is to piece the top for my Night Sky.  Originally, I thought I'd be ambitious and have the entire quilt finished by the end of the month, but upon reflection, I realize that is not likely possible.

I started cutting the pieces some time ago, but stopped when I realized that I needed space to lay everything out.  There are 24 Kona colours in this quilt.

So I set up a folding table in my sewing room this week.  It's a tight squeeze with very little room to move around, but hopefully that will give me the motivation to get this done quickly.

I'll be able to cross off the following Kona colours:

  • Lipstick, Flame, Orange, Kumquat
  • Sprout, Peapod, Kiwi, Leprechaun
  • Peacock, Water, Surf, Riviera
  • Tulip, Crocus, Wisteria, Lilac
  • Pomegranate, Bright Pink, Candy Pink, Carnation
  • Canary, Lemon, Sunny, Papaya

Linking up my WIP with:
