How now brown cow?

I spent nearly the whole day yesterday cutting for my March UFO.  Today in between volunteering at the elementary school and driving the carpool, I was able to sew the first step together.  Here's an idea of what will be at the center of the quilt.

I told you it was all blues and browns!  The center is much bigger than I expected, but it is a little hard to picture a queen size layout without the rest of the quilt around it!

Tomorrow, the piecing will really begin.  Most of the quilts I have made in the past consisted of small shapes chain pieced together one at a time, but this pattern calls for an interesting way of putting everything together by sewing strips, then cutting them on a 45 degree angle, adding a rectangle, splitting it, and somehow I am supposed to end up with square blocks.  We shall see.....

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
