It's been a great monthly QAL. But I forewarn you...there are a LOT of small HST's to be made. The pattern comes in two sizes:
- Baby size - 48 x 48 inches
- Throw size - 60 x 72 inches
I'm glad I went with the baby size because the first step was to make 128 HST's....2.5-inch HST's. Can't imagine having had to make 240 HST's for the throw size.
The two flying geese blocks were pieced in different months, and they were joined together in July's instructions. When I began to press the seams of the newly-joined block, I realized that karma had paid me a visit as payback for not blogging about the QAL. Somehow, I pieced one of the flying geese blocks with the wrong side of the yellow fabric facing out. Ummmm.....how the heck did I do that??? There were 64 blocks, so I made a design choice to leave them as is.
|This is one of the 16 blocks in the baby size.|
At least, I was consistent and pieced all the 64 blocks with the wrong side out. I'm hoping that once it's quilted, my mistake won't be as noticeable.
There are a lot of seams in this quilt. There were a few times when I was piecing the rows that I thought I was going to break a needle.
Time to put on my thinking cap and decide on a quilting plan.
