Week 4, Week 5 and part of Week 6

I went a little overboard this weekend with the nine patches.
Here is week 4

Here is week 5

Here is most of week 6

And here is all of them together so far.

I can't decide if I am going to do the full 70 blocks or not. I love that it would be a nice size quilt, BUT... I don't really have room to sandwich a quilt that large. It would also be a bit difficult to quilt on my machine, too. I am thinking I might stop at 49, then it would be 7 X 7 and would be about 5.5 feet square. I'm not sure yet. I could actually do two more nine patches at this point and it could be 7 x 6 and that wouldn't be bad either. It would be about 58 x 66. That's a pretty decent lap size. Hmm... that's a thought.

Wow, that is pretty. Looks great so far. I've never quilted, so I hope you will share the whole process. ;-)
