Square Deal

In the previous post I mentioned a quilt called Square Deal that was made with 30's reproduction fabric. I have now finished 35 blocks. 

The original pattern calls for 49 blocks and is a 95.5 inch square quilt. I don't really care for square quilts so I only made 35 and will set them 5 x 7 this will still make a large quilt. I thought I had made a picture of most of the blocks on the design wall, but I guess that was the one I took with my cell phone and posted to facebook. I had to lay them out on my king size bed to get placement of blocks the way I wanted them. I now have the rows pinned together and hope to get them sewn in the next few days. 

I am trying to keep up with Bonnie Hunters mystery this year and all I lack on step 3 is the additional cutting. Hope to get that done this morning before I go to work. After tonight's shift I have early tomorrow and then mid shifts Friday and Saturday so I don't know how much sewing will get done. Hope everyone is ready for Christmas because it is right around the corner. 

Good luck finishing things up this week everyone, happy sewing.
