By Sunday night, I had this:
Woo Hoo!!! I achieved my stretch goal of starting the top assembly.
And just before I headed to bed I HAD to lay this out...
the next round of pieces to be stitched. But there are quite a few joining/background pieces that need to be made for all the subsequent rounds of Bird blocks.
I don't want to jinx my progress on this but I am happy to say that I am more ahead of last year's NQOF entry timeline. I do need to stay focused on this, as I have a work trip or possibly two work trips that will take me away from a sewing machine. I am excited to see this quilt evolve!
Oh and THREE more yards of Tahiti Blue batik are on their way! I am hoping this will be enough with some left over - fingers crossed.
