36 Squares -- that's 1.20 x 1.20 m or 1.30 x 1.30 yd

 The planned width for this quilt is 1.3 yds, about single bed size, and 2/3 of the length are reached. As I tend to procrastinating boring jobs and to preferring the creative part, I demand from myself to finish all the sashing strips on front and back before I start the next rows for which I need more road-runners. The backing squares are mere jeopardy, I arrange the front and let the reverse follow.
I'll have to do a few printing sessions which is some fun. Lacking the birds, I inserted two tiger heads, hardly to be recognized.

No System, no Patience, no Symmetry

Yet, I will go on from the 32 squares I have now to the 48 or 56 required. Size will tell.

The Discovery of the Needle

As I got caught in painting routines more or less, I turned my attention back to an almost forgotten tool that I haven't touched for more than half a year, continuing my work on the Roadrunner Quilt.I integrated (haha, misprint "integreated") the BaGua quilt and parts of the experiments from almost a year ago.
It is a quilt-as-you-go, and I find pleasure in inventing lots of bridges which puzzle the grid and don't make it look like jail bars.

Am I still able to do this?

I think so. Naturalistic view of a quarry in Wales, watercolors, double letter format, paper.
