Progress

Just in case you are wondering what I am up to this week:


I am still piecing blocks with tiny squares.  Each block measures 13 inches x 13 inches and is made up of  100 pieces each.  Each finished square measures 1.25 inches.  Tiny!


I do love how the blocks look laid out next to each other, however this layout is not going to be how the final design will come together. I am busy piecing another block with which the above blocks will be alternated.


Hopefully the final layout will come together as planned.  More pictures soon.

  19. I have made several quilts with 1 inch squares (finished size) and they are a pain to press open but so worth the trouble! Look forward to seeing what your quilt will look like finished.

  24. Gorgeous! Talk about a scrapbuster project! Are you using the applique/fusible interfacing technique and then stitching the seams?
    I think a project like this may be in order for me to use up all my duplicate 2.5" squares after my hexagon charm quilt is finished.
