Adding the bright blue strips first
then the dark blue strips
I had thought it would take me a day.....wrong! Once cut, it took me about an hour to make them all,
These FG are correct. They start at the bottom, fly around the centre, upwards towards the top, where the points meet. Almost half of my blocks were wrong!.
This may have been the reason they ended up in the "too hard"box 6 years ago. Who does not hate unpicking?
Two hours back on this project, and I had the job of unpickin 2 FG strips on almost half of the blocks. It took me half a day, but I did it.
Row number two added
Row number 3 added
Row number 4 added, and I am running out of space on my floor to take photos.
This past week I have done very little else about the house, but it seems to be worth it to get this old beauty finished.
How am I going to quilt it????? I am not skilled enough to machine quilt it myself, and hand quilting is my preference, but there are so many seams, I think it is going to be hard going. Custom machine quilting I think might be the answer, and I will investigate the options there. Any ideas?
