I have been working on the blocks for my sister Kathlene's quilt and I have decided that my plan of attack will be to make all of each block component before moving onto the next. I feel very confident doing that because I already made one test block and it turned out just fine. The block I am making does have a lot of pieces but they can be easily broken down into segments and chain pieced. I have started with the corner triangles and chain piecing really does make it a lot easier to tackle the block one bite at a time.
I am using one specific purple fabric for the square in the corner and the side triangles are from a selection of scrappy blue fabric. I plan on making 56 blocks and I need 4 of these triangle segments per block. I now have all 224 pieces made, pressed and dog-eared and it didn't hurt at all!
I have bundled them into groups of 20 using these hair clips. I found these clips at a local retail store and they were very inexpensive. They seem to be working quite well at keeping things organized.
