getting closer...

to finishing up these teeny tiny blocks; think i have 8 more to make and honestly, will NOT miss those 1" finished half square triangles one single bit!  cutting a gazillion 1.5" squares and pairing them up gets old fast.   but here's the latest stack and catching up once more since december is bearing down and the light at the end of this tunnel is beginning to break through...


once the little blocks are done, will have to go thru my dark scrap basket and toss anything too small and then pull out the lights.  after that, the corner squares for the dark border will be made so can put on the final 2 dark borders and then attack the light blocks.   this is one heavy flimsy so far and not even complete yet.  have not yet decided how to finish and what to do with it, but after such an extreme effort, might have to just keep this one if a place can be found for storage.  ***  thanksgiving leftovers are gone and plans in full swing for the holiday season, which will be low key probably but still joyous.....

  3. Your blocks are perfect. I think that after all the work you have put into this quilt you should either keep it for yourself or gift it to your daughter who hopefully will appreciate your efforts.

  4. Your tenacity with this project is admirable! I started out saving the patterns to do another time, but finally stopped, realizing I would never have the patience to finish it.
    After all this work, could you bear to part with this quilt? It will be a treasure!!
