My First Quilt - Part 3

On the Design Wall...

I finally got all the blocks pieced for the quilt I am making my sister.  Here is what it looks like on the design wall.

Blocks, not joined & sashing strips

Don't mind the shelves in the background...I'm a teacher who has been out of the classroom for 2 years, and those are boxes of books for my classroom library!  :)

Blocks pieced together

I had previously decided to make the quilt smaller than the pattern calls for, by making only 25 blocks.  As this quilt was (is?) a gift to my sister for her 25th birthday, 24 blocks will make up the quilt top and there will be one block pieced into the back.

So far, so good!  Now to join the rows to the sashing and I will have my first official quilt top!

More to come,
