Blocks are Made

All the blocks are made now for the Scrappidy-Do-Dah quilt I am making.  I have named my version “Blue On Blue” and the final block count is 296.  If I would have known I was going to be making that many blocks at the beginning, to be honest, I am not sure I would have even started this quilt.  Here they are laid out on my living room carpet.IMG_3193
It helped that I went through the blue fabrics in my stash and cut 2 squares and two strips of each fabric before I even went to the workshop….I have a lot of blue fabric.  The squares and strips were stacked in a box so when I felt like sewing after the workshop was over all I had to do was pick up the pieces and start.  I could sew a few or more depending on how much time I had.   I did have to make about twelve more blocks from some of those same blues to get up to the 296.

Next on to stitching the blocks together.

That's going to be a very pretty quilt.

It looks terrific. You are a braver soul that I. Getting those diagonals to come out perfectly is not an easy task.
