Postcard from Sweden QAL Update

I'm making progress on my Postcard from Sweden quilt.  But unfortunately, I've been so busy with work, that it's taken me four days to type this post.

I started out here with a pile of squares and triangles.  They've now been turned into HST's.


And I even managed to get the HST's up on my design wall.  I did make an error design choice -- I mismatched the colours in two of the HST's.  Oh well...



I substituted some of the Kona colours.  This is what the final quilt is supposed to look like:

I'm linking up my progress with Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts.

I'm off to try to squeeze in an hour of sewing before doing my homework for tomorrow's class.

  10. Only your hairdresser knows for sure! (Are you too young to remember that Lady Claire's commercial?). Anja, it is already gorgeous, and you haven't even sewn it together yet! Well done! XO

  11. I cannot spot the 'deliberate design decision'. It looks like it should to me.

  12. It's looking great Anja, and with such a varied colour selection it's impossible to see where the 'mistake' is, and who cares anyway? You have a wonderful quilt. I think you were very brave to make it, I love it, but my bank balance quivers at the thought of buying all those different fabrics.
