I completed the center portion of this quilt over the weekend. This is the largest quilt I've worked on in quite some time - it takes up ALL of my design wall! Stage 2 is a row of black and cream 1/2 square triangles, and I've completed sewing all of them together into rows, now I just have to attach them to the quilt. Stage 3 is a row of 2-1/2 inch by 6-1/2 inch red, followed by Stage 4 which for me will be a row of 6-1/2 inch squares, making it 4 inches larger on each side than the pattern directs. This is going to be one BIG quilt!!! I think I'll definitely be over my 'red' phase by the time this one is complete!
