Always an exciting stage [updated]

With those Blue-n-Gold Pride units waiting patiently all week long, I was anxious to get downstairs this morning to start the FUN-n-EXCITING stage of staring to piece them all together.

Piecing-n-Pressing has been much of my morning

And the first glimmer of a quilt top is enough to keep me pushing along at warp speed :0)

Takin' a small mid-breakfast break; jam-n-toast with coffee.

I see alllll those tomatoes on the table, just a-waitin' to see some processing today. And they will!!! Just a little bit later; after lunch, maybe.

For now.....I wonder if I can get that top together by lunch time.

Hmmm....1.5 hours away; I don't think so, but I'll do the best I can.

12:15 update
Too much of a good thing isn't always good when other things are also pressing in for time! With lunch needing to be made, and an afternoon of processing tomatoes on the priority list, I must set my B-n-G Pride sewing aside for now. The good news, though.......I was motivated and busy last night prepping for all of my classes and grading all my homework papers. Therefore, I have NO SCHOOLWORK looming over me for the rest of the weekend. I'm betting I'll be back with B-n-G later this evening :0)

Happy Saturday!

Starting to come together! It is always so hard to leave a quilt when it is in that just starting to gel stage. Knowing you though, it will be together soon enough.

B-n-G is looking great! Hope you get to work on it tonight. I wanna set what it looks like together.

I was piecing this morning too, in between my 4 mile slog. Sure felt good to sew again.

Your quilt is coming together quite nicely. The blue and gold are quite striking together.
