Supernatural Quilt: Assembling The Top

So I've been slacking off a bit on my quilt. I got all my squares done, I just hadn't assembled them yet. Then just yesterday I heard that some Supernatural fans are putting together an art showshow on Oct 3rd. Now I have a reason to finish it and a deadline to keep me focused. In one day I squared up my blocks, cut out sashing and corner squares, and assembled most of the top. It's starting to look more like a quilt! However the eagle eyed viewer will notice the Impala STILL doesn't have wheels. I know, I know, it's still on my to-do list. At this point I had to call it a day and go to work, but the plan for today is another row of sashing on the outer edge and another grey border to finish the top. Tomorrow I hope to pick up batting and sandwich the quilt. Following days will be for quilting. That will take the longest because I'm gonna do that by hand and that will NOT be my favorite part. Hopefully it will be presentable by the 3rd.

Check out the art show on Twitter on October 3rd. Follow the hashtag #SupernaturalArtShow for all the artists participating.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Quilt Block

Tested and photo by Elise C.

My first Guardians of the Galaxy block! I'm not doing a quilt of this so I just designed the block and another woman tested it. She's making a Marvel based quilt for a friend and asked for an Awesome Mix Vol. 1 block. I'm glad it went together well for her :D
