Missionary Quilt Update

First of all, I promise to upload pictures from the quilts I've quilted the last few weeks soon. Very soon.

Secondly, I am making really great progress on this Missionary Quilt. I counted the other night, and there are like 77 Sister missionary blocks and 240-something Elder missionary blocks. That's right, there are over 314 blocks. Sister Newman wants me to add a border, so I am thinking a 5 inch border around the outside will be adequate. I might have to border some of the blocks, too, but as of right now, it is looking like the quilt will turn out around a Queen size.

I finished all of the Sister blocks that have material provided. I counted around 53 blocks. There are about 25 blocks that need material. I kind of want to wait until I have the elders done, though, so that I can use matching colors from the leftover fabric from the other sister blocks.

I have a couple of design ideas for how to put the quilt together. When I get more blocks done I'll take pictures and post them.

Well, back to work!
