En Provence! Flimsy

I have a flimsy of En Provence! completed! For those non-quilters out there a "flimsy" is a quilt top that hasn't been quilted yet. This has been a wonderful learning experience and I have had the time of my life putting this quilt together. My design wall is not big enough:

I had to pull out my ironing station and reach high as I could. Still not big enough! Once I get it actually quilted, I shall get better photos. I am pleased as punch. It turned out just lovely! I will certainly do Bonnie's Mystery quilt again this year. 

I am still trying to figure out where these leftover four patches go. Can I really miscount that badly? Really? I admit I am not the best at math but whoa...there's like forty leftover pieces here! HaHaHa!

I am hoping to take my flimsy to a local shop that lets one rent a longarm. I'd love to quilt it myself. Now to find the perfect backing and binding fabric! I also need to start ironing a bunch of blue fabrics I've been collecting for my next quilt...

Slow Rows

It may be slow going with the En Provence quilt but it is going! I have two rows almost completed. Thinking about it again...these blocks are so large I nearly have half the quilt put together, right? Ha!

I think it looks really cool. There is still a row of the neutral four patches to add to the outside border. I believe that border is my favorite part of the entire quilt, all those mixed-up not-plain-white neutrals make an amazingly beautiful design. This idea will definitely be used again by me.

Ok, Super Bowl Sunday snacks are at hand...I gotta run!
