The final 30 blocks
It has been quite some time since I have worked on this quilt - since January. My, my where does the time go? I pulled the bin containing the partially made blocks off the shelf and got busy with it yesterday. The last time I posted about this quilt I had 67 blocks made but when I took it off the shelf I only found 63 blocks. I got 27 blocks made yesterday and I added another 30 today. I am sure that the missing blocks will turn up now. Doesn't that always happen after you remake them? Sewing these blocks together was quite a speedy process. I didn't really pay too much attention to the fabric placement other than I tried to not have any of the same side-by-side. I love, love the colour combination that my niece Amanda has chosen!

It didn't take long to sew them into pairs
I plan to work on it some more today and maybe I just might get the whole top sewn together. Hopefully, nothing comes up that I must take care of now that I am on a roll with this quilt. I already have everything ready for dinner because I had been on a cooking binge over the past few days and we are going to have roast beef sandwiches au jus along with a salad. I made the roast the other day and the crusty bread yesterday so it just needs to be turned into sandwiches and I will leave it to my husband to put a salad together. It sounds like a great plan to me!
