Are We There Yet?
The question of the week has to be the progress of my latest quilt. Are you done yet? Almost!
Only 15 more blocks to go (keep in mind there were only 165 blocks to make) and then the fun part begins...putting it all together!! I timed myself and it takes approximately 40 minutes to piece five blocks. I used a total of 30 different Civil War prints with a few repeats of my favorite ones. During construction, I just stick my IPod into my pocket and listen to the latest podcast of the "Vinyl Cafe" or catch up on an audible book while sewing.
I chewed through "Cutting the Stone" (highly recommended!!) It's amazing how much work you accomplish without any interruptions plus a great way of getting caught up with the latest novel.
