700 and counting

 Here is how I've been spending my sewing time: basting little rectangles of fabric onto little rectangles of card stock. Do you remember the post about the quilt Faithful Circle? For a bit of a refresher, I will need 2,094 of these. Onward!

  1. 2,094? OMG. You are ever so much crazier than I thought. Do you need an intervention?

  2. Definitely a bit mind boggling, but doesn't seem any worse than Bonnie's millions of tiny triangle for her Pineapple Log cabin! And she has to remove all that paper, LOL. You go girl! I'll bet it's kind of relaxing to just baste away like that, almost mindless. Have fun. Hugs, Finn

  3. Thanks for the link to the previous post. I do remember this and I recall the excitement. Probably will be a project to show off your talent the way Hugs and Kisses has.

  6. Over 2000??? With 700 done, I would settle for a smaller version. You have more patience than I. But it will be a stunning accomplishment when done!

  11. In matters such as this, I find it best to not count them until you are done. Then big numbers are good.

    It looks like it is going to be a beautiful quilt.

  18. Have you chosen your background fabric? I just encountered Moda's tea-dyed muslin ... feels wonderful and comes in several shades. Might be an alternative to "muslin" or "white" (check the Delta Patchwork website for the Moda muslins)
