Started the fire fighter quilt
I've been putting this quilt off for a couple of years mostly because I just don't like working with panels. It drives me batty that they are never printed even close to square. But now I have a deadline (August) to get this one done so it's the only sewing project that I brought on vacation.
After several tries, this is the layout that I decided on. The fabrics in this rendering are just random ones from EQ. You will see the real ones as the week goes on.
Yesterday I got started with the center of the quilt and today I'll start making the pinwheel blocks.
So far, so good.
It was pretty gray and quite cold all day yesterday but the son came out in the evening just in time to get this photo. Not a bad way to end the day!

It looks like you managed to get the panel square enough to work. So YaAy for that.

I am not a fan of panels either, but what you have so far is going to make a decent looking quilt. That sunset is beautiful!

Beautiful sunset! My cousin is a firefighter so I know he'd like this quilt.
