Twisted Rope progress...

Note: All of my blog posts this week were written in advance.  I'm currently at a quilt retreat at the beach working on charity quilts.

I haven't blogged about this quilt since May (I think).  It's a quilt I'm making for my good friend LeeAnn and it'll be king-sized when all is said and done.  I'm calling the quilt Twisted Rope because that's the name of one of the main blocks in it.  Here's the picture from EQ7 with the fabrics she's chosen...

As part of my math obsession, I figured out that there are 931 pieces in it and 181 Snowball and Twisted Rope blocks.  To date, I have everything cut out including borders and setting triangles.  I've also finished piecing all 100 6" snowball blocks.

I'm bringing the pieces for the 81 Twisted Rope blocks with me and hope to make some progress on them as well.  It's not a hard block but does require partial seaming.  I'm really hoping to have this quilt top completed within the next 2 weeks, but God may have other plans.  We'll just have to see.

Until later...

The Lord has hidden himself from his people, but I trust him and place my hope in him.
