62 arcs

62 DWR (double wedding ring) arcs that is.

While hubby watched football on Sunday, I sewed instead!  I am paper-piecing these with the free pattern found here and it is SLOW going.  I have 62 down and I-don't-know-how-many-more to go.  Until I run out of the Hello Betty jelly roll I cut into 2.5'' squares I guess!
Only one problem - I need a couple solids to use for the cornerstones.  I'd like to use the red and the aqua - and there wasn't enough in the jelly roll to do them all.  Does anybody know (or know how to find out) what colors those are and if they are in a Bella solid?  I have a color chart for Konas, but not one for Moda Bellas.  Oh, and the off-white in this collection background seems to be a bit darker than Snow too, a little more 'dusty' looking like the rest of the colors.

I have a first coming up - a first time to use a longarm!  I am meeting with a local quilter at her house to 'rent' time on her longarm!  I am so excited!  I can't wait to share when the time comes (this is for a secret project, but I do plan to quilt my scrappy trip around the world quilt next).
