Week 18 EPP - Virtual Quilt

This is my plan:

As you can see it's a screen shot of a spreadsheet - there's no quilting software in the Blue Moth house!  Rough and ready, but it's good enough.  The scale is wrong and in the image I've duplicated some of the all-over EPP blocks.  In the real quilt they will all be different.  I had to cheat because I haven't made the EPP blocks big enough yet!  In fact, the piece which began this saga is not there, because it needs at least a week's work.  

Some sewing has been done though.  I made the octagon piece bigger.  Here's Miss Ted using it as a garden quilt in the evening sunshine. She's even taken off her cardigan, but not the socks. Never the socks.

I'm still working on making the other blocks up to 12 inches square. Next week I will carry on doing that. I am looking forward to finishing that stage so I can start joining some of the blocks together.  

As always. I'm linking up with Life Under Quilts and WIP Wednesday.


  1. We can use our imagination and the 'real' quilt is going to be a dazzler. Have you ever thought of using the star blocks as the alternate blocks rather than plain blocks? You could always sash the blocks if you wanted a visual resting spot between. Miss Ted is looking very rested and tanned, just as she should this time of year. Happy Mid-Summer from all the teddies here.

  2. I love seeing your continued progress on this! It is fun to do a mock up and see what it can become. Keep it up. Thanks for the cute shot of Miss Ted, too--such a cutie!

  3. Gorgeous octagon quilt! and your Miss Ted is an exact twin to my 60yr old english teddy - except he has one eye missing!

  4. It's going to be interesting seeing your virtual quilt becoming reality. Have fun with it.

  5. It looks like a great idea! Love the colors!

  6. While it may not be to scale, how fun to "sketch" it out and see how it will come together. Very cute bear, by the way. Very cute.


I really appreciate comments and encouragement, and will reply by email unless you are a "no reply blogger". Thank you.
