So after finishing the top of Park Ranger Boyfriend's Civil War quilt, I felt like I could start a new project with a clean conscience. Plus, I found some of the coordinate fabrics on the $3.95 sale at Fabric.com last week. (More on that tomorrow.)
But as usual, I forget to take pictures of every step. Drat. Here's one picture of in progress from making the patch diamonds and putting the first border on them.
Here's my completed blocks laid out on the wood floor:
The pattern calls for 39 blocks, but I plan to use up as much of the fabric as I can and keep making blocks. I have 41 blocks made so far, and have center strip sets ready for 14 more blocks.
I've been doing the math trying to figure out how many blocks I will need for a bigger quilt. I do have fabric reserved for a border and for a backing, but I might have to piece a back if this thing ends up as big as I think it might.
Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!
