hand piecing, hand applique and machine piecing or a combination of the three techniques to complete these blocks.
I should probably take a group photo every ten or so blocks so that I see the overall picture of how they are coming together. Case in point - what is up with all the yellow backgrounds? I see that I need to use other colours besides yellow when the block calls for a background that is not neutral. lol
I started seeing these blocks on soscrappy's blog and I couldn't get enough of them so I decided to join in and make some of my own. Of course, Angela was way ahead of me and has a beautiful quilt to show for it!!! Deb of vtquilter joined in as well and she has many blocks made that are ready to be turned into a quilt. They were both much more dedicated at working on them on a regular basis than I was and it shows. :)
Blocks #51 to 196 are still available for free from Sentimental Stitches so pop on over and get them while you can!
I plan/hope to be a little more disciplined in making these little blocks and I am striving to do at least one a week. We will see how long I can keep it up but maybe I will find motivation in knowing that I will have the cutest quilt when they are done.
I am working today but later this evening I plan to work on this little cutie. I will definitely be hand piecing this one!
