    Bella Bella quilt progress

    I started this St Mark's wall hanging last fall, but it got pushed aside while doing other projects. But I have it back on my design wall. The first picture is the quilt on my cutting table. I was just laying it out to make sure I had all the colors in the right places. The 2nd picture was taken last night of the quilt on my design wall. I am 2/3rds of the way through with this part of the wallhanging. The wedges are not sewn together yet, just pinned in place. I started out with paper piecing but then switched to "paperless piecing" after someone posted that method here on the quilting board.
    Here is a link to the paperless piecing method: http://pinterest.com/pin/268386459013175068/
    Here is a link to Norah McMeeking's Bella Bella Wall hangings: http://www.bellabellaquilts.com/bella.html
    If you order her book and pattern, the pattern comes printed on freezer paper, which is what is needed for paperless piecing.

    Now to see if I can post the pictures. Sorry about the quality, I took them with my cell phone camera!

    What a fabulous quilt!!! I am glad that it is no longer a ufo. The paperless piecing was demoed in one of my quilt groups. Great way to save time.

    Good luck. Quite an ambitious project but it will be stunning when completed.

    That is going to be fabulous! It looks so intricate, but looking closer I can see how it breaks down. I will love to see the finished quilt.

    Beautiful colors with a unique pattern. I am looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I am working on Venice Rose from Bella Bella. All the quilts in that book are so lovely. I take breaks from doing the spokes as it is tedious work isn't it. But as yours will be lovely, we need to push forward and complete a very rewarding quilt.
