FNSI Recap

I didn't accomplish as much as I wanted to last night. I had hoped to finish 3 blocks last night but instead I spent most of my time redoing the half square triangles. I went to be sometime after 10:30 pm and left most of the triangle pieces looking like this. I just didn't have the engery to add the other triangle and to be accuate enough to get the 1/4 inch above the 1/2 square triangle needed so the point doesn't get cut off.

However, I still need to finish these blocks soon. I mean she is getting married in less than a month. So this morning, after I woke up properly, I put together the three blocks.

Tonight I want to finish two more.

Then I only have the last 3 center blocks to get done before the wedding. However, I am hoping to get them done this week. UPDATE : I so counted wrong. See that lovely stack below... it you look oh so very closely there are actually two different prints there and I still have 5 center blocks left to do.

I will still have the flying geese border to work on too, but one step at a time.  Plus she wants the centers of these blocks signed by her guests so at least I don't have get a whole quilt together in a month.

  2. It's frustrating when things don't go to plan and you end up going backwards more than forwards. But what you ended up doing is looking great. The colours look lovely, so fresh. It's a brilliant idea to get the wedding guests to sign the centres of the blocks. It will be a real heirloom.
