Making Progress

Making the blocks for my latest quilt was so easy, I whipped out 48 8 1/2" blocks in no time - a piece of cake!

Making the quilt top - not as easy!!  After rearranging the blocks into every conceivable pattern, I finally chose the one I wanted.  Sewing them together has been a slow progress.  I usually chain stitch my blocks  but I'm having to sew each of them together one at a time so I don't lose my pattern.  Also after cutting the HSTs, the blocks became very stretchy so I am taking extra care when sewing them so they don't lose their shape.

I'm 1/4 done with joining the blocks and the quilt is looking really great.
