Marsel and I got her quilt loaded on the frame so that every spare moment could contribute to its completion!
All the fussy-cut squares are rightly accented!

When it came to the applique plans......I hit a brick wall! Note to self-do not buy this double sided fusible web ever again! The paper just doesn't release and I had a mess.

I worked on Millie's quilt until it was up off the floor-a big hurdle for me!
I have the plans all drawn up.
Now I have to cut it all out! This is how I work from the drawing-figuring out how many of each and working to make it all fit before I begin sewing. I had planned on having the large squares in the center section on being cut 6 1/2" but I bought a collection and the fabrics were all cut as 6" strips. I just cut the sashing a bit larger and it should all work out just fine!
I ended with a reknit-I ripped out the bulky cap that was just a bit too small and redid the math to make it larger. I have this feeling it is a bit too large but it will be whatever size it is after this!
