Besides stuffing myself with food over the long Thanksgiving weekend.....I managed to spend more than a couple of hours each day stitching squares.....
However, during one sewing session I chain pieced a whole bunch of center square blocks. Knowing I needed a variety allowed me to try to just pick up cut strips without agonizing over each one!!
But now.....I have only 7 more to go....these will be the small square variety.... At this point I am now going to be more thoughtful about fabric choices for each remaining position. Hopefully I'll be pleased with the layout and won't find repetitive fabrics/colors next to each other before I begin to sew the rows together.
This may or may not be the last peek you see of the quilt. You all know what it will look like now.....and the quilting will be simple straight lines.... Even though this of course used a great deal of fabric.....as I look in my closet I don't even see a dent in the stacks.
I guess there will be more patchwork stitching ahead for me....however not real soon as I'm now concentrating on two projects, neither of which are beaded and my fingers itch!!
