Twilight Hopscotch Progress

It's been slow going for me with this project but at last, all 16 blocks for Twilight Hopscotch are finished and on the design wall.


The rest of the design will be formed by the pieced sashing, which is a project for the upcoming week.  I want to get the top finished before I have to clear up the sewing and transform the quilting room into the guest room, in time for my mother's Christmas visit.

The quilt is really easy to make, and fast once you get the little four-patch sub-blocks made.  It is just that I've had other things demanding my time lately. We are having new hardwood floors installed on the first floor of our house in early January, a project that has taken some careful planning as we need to move all of the furniture and rugs out of the rooms and fully vacate the house for about 12 hours each day while the finish dries.  It has taken some planning to figure who and what is going where and when.   Then we'll have to move it all back in again and put everything away.  Where's Carson the butler when you need him?

Wow -- it sounds like you have your hands full -- and making a quilt in the middle of it all -- even with the holidays??? Impressive!!! I can't wait to see your sashing!

Everything on your top is lovely. It appears to be a one color quilt. Does it ever get boring just working with one color? I realize a finished top done this way is stunning and admire anyone who does one.

Hats off to you for having your floors done. Again the results are the payback!
Merry Christmas,
Pam
