Progress :)

I have been making slow but steady progress on my happy and scrappy quilt blocks. I ran out of room on my design wall and I wanted to see how things were coming along so I moved them to the 'design floor'. Oh....I love it!
This was the first photo that I took of my design floor and as soon as I looked at it I realized I had made an error in positioning my blocks. Boy, taking a photo and looking at it or even just looking at it through the camera lens can really help identify those sneaky little oopsies.

The zigzag layout is the actual layout from the magazine and after seeing my blocks laid out this way I know I like it a lot.

This is the layout that I originally showed on my design wall and I like this layout too. It will be pretty tough to decide which one to choose. ;) I still have a lot more blocks to make so I don't have to make my final decision yet but I really do like the offset blocks.

Last evening I started with this big pile of hst parts at my sewing machine and after a bit of sewing it dwindled to this.

I now have 160 hsts prepared and ready to be sewn into my blocks but according to my math I still need 80 more. Of course, my math is always fuzzy. ;)

Fuzzy math or not, your blocks are coming along so well. What a fun quilt this is going to be.

Hi Ellen

I love the look of your quilt blocks. You have more colour in yours than mine. I put a little twist in mine so a little different but you will see that when your come for visit. This quilt is going to be gorgeous and it will be interesting to see ours put together.
Love sis
