As I’ve been out of the house for much of today, progress for 3 days might seem slow with 18 squares, but there are so only about another 150 to go, she says with a blithe waive of the hand and a broad smile. I think this will all average out at about 6-8 squares a day, which means the piecing should all be done by early-mid November. There’s no doubt with all straight sewing, this is working up more quickly than it would if there was a curve in the design, at least the way I do them, pinning each curved seam before sewing – that adds up over a large project like this.
Right now I am ready to cut into some lovely citric, greeny-yellow fabric, and there are many more different fabrics in the colours from warm turquoise blues and warm greens that will add up to a lovely colour scheme.
Also, at the moment I’m showing them pinned in rows of blocks oriented in the opposing direction, as per this pic:
I like this look, but will fiddle with other layout possibilities, such as groups of 4 with all the triangle corners in the centre of the 4 piece block, and will post a pic or two in another few days, so stay posted.
