Floral Seven Sisters
The last time I showed my progress on this latest seven sisters quilt I had only one block completed. I also had enough floral diamonds pieced into stars and ready for joining together to make four more blocks as well as enough floral diamonds cut and ready to sew into stars for a sixth block.
Things have changed a bit and out of the twelve blocks I am making for the quilt, I currently have five completed blocks and seven blocks still under construction. All of the floral stars have been pieced and have been joined together to form the sisters for each block and now these last seven blocks are just waiting for some background fabric to be added. I did not have enough background pieces prepped to finish them up. :(
These three blocks just need the large corner pieces added to them to finish them up. The corners really are quite easy and quick to add so these blocks won't take long to finish once I get going on them. The other four blocks won't be quite as quick but, of course, most of the piecing has already been done.
I am not working today, so I plan to spend time marking and cutting the background fabric to get all of the required pieces ready for adding to the final blocks. I need diamonds, trapezoids and the larger corner pieces.
