We have a road trip coming up and English paper piecing is a great take along project for me. I have planned to make the quilt with 49 blocks in a 7 x 7 grid.
These are the last few blocks I have made and the main 49 are finished. Yea!
I have been going through all my left over fabric from the main blocks and started to cut the small square corner blocks. 68 of these are needed.
Next will come around 1000 fussy cut sashing connector blocks from this fabric.
ONE THOUSAND ! What was I thinking? It is a good thing I enjoy the process, you sort of get into a rhythm.
Finally the background pieces will be sewn to the sashing and corner squares to make these two different units. They will be sewn between the main 49 blocks.
Easy right? This quilt is not even to the half way point yet. It is not going to be finished for a long time but that is okay I have come to enjoy these labor intensive quilts.
My husband has been telling me there has been a black squirrel around lately and I finally spotted him at my neighbor's feeder today.
Happy Stitching and Happy Spring!
