One row done

Wow, that took a long time to sew just three sections together!  There are 25 blocks per circle plus the 5 blocks between them.  Interesting to see how much length sewing them together took up.  It looks so small now.  I had to measure out what it will be with the two rows of 4-patch blocks all around it to satisfy myself that it would be a good sized quilt for my daughter's full-sized bed.

After a couple of stops and starts about how to press the seams I finally decided on pressing the center block seams open and then each row going opposite directions.  That seemed the best to me and reduced bulk where it really mattered but cut down on pressing everything open.

It's not totally perfect but good enough for me.


  1. This is looking ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I can't wait to see this completed!

  2. Thank you. :-) Going to try and get it mostly done over the next three days off work. I got the last of the light fabric I needed yesterday and got all of the pieces cut.

  3. Love the pattern - what's it called?
