Traveling Bee-utiful – November

1 11 2015

I’ve had my Traveling Bee-utiful quilt top-in-progress for the month of November for a while now – two weeks maybe?. I got it up on my design wall and photographed about a week ago. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve been kind of worried about and dreading this one…

It’s a sewing room themed quilt top. You’d think that would be something of a snap for me, but this is the last stop on this quilt’s journey, so I’ve got the work of several different quilters to unify. Kind of terrifying, in a creative, don’t want to screw this up way.

The quilt top is actually in three segments, along with an extra block.

I have a bit of unpicking to do, I think – the section bordered in black has some places where it wasn’t seamed. This is leading to some of the distortion in that section. I’d like to fix that, before I start adding to this.

As for what I will add, I have a few paper-pieced block patterns that I think will work well. I just have to piece them, and decide just how to add them, keeping the entire composition in mind. This is intended to be a wall hanging, so I’ve got to keep that foremost in my design plans too.

[…] I had Tuesday off from work, so I planned for Tuesday to be a sewing day. I thought I’d buckle down and work on the November’s sewing commitment. […]
