I can't believe it's Monday already! Sometimes I really have to scramble to have something blog-worthy on my wall to post. Here is this week's offering:
I started this in January in a Bonnie Hunter class at Road to California. Typical for one of Bonnie's patterns it has about a million pieces. See the lone block above the top row? The quilt needs 224 of those. Each of those 224 blocks has two half-square triangles and two 4-patches. If my math is any good that means almost 450 1/2 squares and 450 4-patches. Yup, that's a lot.
I thought I had all the smaller units done and I plan to spend a good long time sewing them into 224 blocks. It has taken me this long because I rarely work on it as my primary quilt. I've done most of it this year by making it my leader/ender project. It's been fun to see the project box fill up with completed units.
Tonight I sewed the final 4-patch unit. I've thought for a LONG time that I already had all the 1/2 squares done but when I began making stacks to sew the blocks together I came the the very sad realization that I've been living under a delusion. I still need about 100. SIGH.
Go see what everyone else has on their design walls at Patchwork Times.
Have a fabulous Monday.
