The First Corner Piece Fit!

I was so concerned that the corner units for the Civil War Chronicles quilt might not fit, that I decided to add the first one before completing the other three.  It actually went on fairly easily.  I know this is not a good picture, but the project is growing so large, it is a real challenge to get it up on the design wall.  If I take more photographs after the other units are added, I will have to figure something else out.  I think I’ll do smaller projects in 2012!

We had a wonderful rainy day yesterday with accumulations of about .59 inches in town and .32 inches at the ranch for the last 48 hours.  We are hopeful that there will be more, but so far only drizzle.

Looking good there, Mary! You're going to have a stunning quilt when you're finished!

Oh that is looking fabulous! Isn't it wonderful when big corner sections like that fit!! I would have sewed it on first too to make sure before going on to the others one.

This looks wonderful! You are inspiring me -- I want to get the last three kits in house (Month 9, 10 & 11) done before the last month's kit comes. I've so got to get busy!

I haven't put any of the sections together yet and I am nervous about that too. But I am encouraged by how great yours looks. Keep up the good work and what a beauty to have ready for quilting in 2012!

It looks great - I bet you let out a sigh of relief that it did!
