Last night when I finished the Texas quilt, I was so excited to get to start my March Color Palette Challenge this morning. When I got to the sewing room a little after noon, I started picking up the leftover pieces from the Texas quilt and was going to pack it all away so I could make Vince’s quilt later. Then I thought . . why not just do it while I have everything out and the measurements are fresh on my mind. For the first Texas quilt, I had planned to set it 5 blocks across with 6 rows up and down so that would have been 30 blocks. When I decided to set it 4 x 5, I only needed 20 blocks but I had most of the segments done for the extra 10 blocks. That meant I only needed to make segments for 10 more blocks and then assemble all the blocks. I could do it! And, I did it!
The corner blocks are made for the wide border. I think I can get this top assembled completely tomorrow and then maybe on Tuesday get started on my Color Palette Challenge top.

An early design wall post?!? Look forward to seeing how you will set these blocks together.

WOW, you are amazing, the energiser bunny has nothing on you!
That is one quick quilt, as beautiful as the last.
Please would you enlighten a dumb Aussie on the significance of the “Yellow Jacket” Saw Vince in his Banana suit and reminded me to ask about the name Yellow Jacket, is it a safety vest joke?
Cheerio from Marie in W.Aust.
Good job! I am suitably impressed!
Wowza! You are inspirational!
Gee you are a machine – you almost make me feel guilty (quilty?)

LOVE the Texas quilt and Vince will love his too.
I wasn’t exactly sure how I would like the Texas quilt but it is truly beautiful and Vince is so right in wanting his own!!! Your reasoning for going ahead with it now is the same as mine with the current projects (3) ready to be quilted today. I commented yesterday (your site) that I had a large lap quilt, wall quilt and table runner all complete and ready for quilting. These were all done with the same fabrics so why not keep on? The larger quilt will be a gift for DH’s cousin and the other 2 are, also, going to special homes. I will have to say, I could definitely see my stash disappearing as I continued. I believe there was nothing left except for the selvage edges. And that is a “very good thing”!! Hugs,

Oh! Sure enough, there it is! I have a hard time keeping up on Sundays! LOL! (I didn’t even get my own blog/stash report finished until yesterday evening!) This is going to be a gorgeous quilt!! 🙂

Quiltaholic for sure. Just like my sister. Love her madly but, have just wanted to slap her sometimes. LOL You and her so lucky to be able to do that much quilting in such a short time.
