Will this be the one?

 I got all 20 of my big strip sets finished!!! 
 I was hoping that I would get them done yesterday and I did!
 Now I am moving on to the next step of making 17 of the small strip sets that consist of 4 strips.  I will get those done today...hopefully.
 A few of you have asked what the quilt is going to look like (hopefully) and here is a photo of the original. 
 This is a Edyta Sitar design for Laundry Basket Quilts that she is doing as a Craftsy class.  The quilt it called, Trail Mix.  

I'm sure that this quilt will take me a while but I am not in a hurry.  Lots of pieces in this one!  I will consider this my Fall/Winter machine project.  I always have lots of hand sewing projects in the works but I will consider this one my main machine project right now.  

I have this quilt hanging on my upstairs balcony wall.  I've had it there since we moved in.  As you can see in the photos below the house was not finished or the wall painted.  :)
 That is 22ft to the ceiling so I want something that will be substantial. 
I've been thinking that I need to change it....will this be the quilt that I replace it with???????  I don't know, I will have to wait and see.

every now and then it is time to change a quilt wall I always think, rotate out to change your look it is a lovely log cabin quilt. I'm not sure if I would want to do the quilt you are currently working on with my record of not being precise I think this one wouldn't turn out well for me.

That is going to be one beautiful creation, Kristie.
I admire your stick-to-it-iveness with these long term projects. I tend to want to "getterdone" or forget it. Patience is not a virtue I possess. : )

Either one would be gorgeous...you might have to switch between the two. :)

I admire your patience in working with such an intense quilt ... but your patience will be rewarded with a beautiful quilt. I'm going to enjoy following along as you work on it.
