Cutting went fairly quickly, but I discovered on the last couple of strips that I was cutting the jewel shapes incorrectly, so I ended up with a bunch of small and large triangle off cuts. Sigh....I wondered why I needed to cut more strips. Oh well....now I have triangles at the ready to make another quilt.
Sewing the pieces went very quickly. I chain pieced the two sections of each block.
The grey colours really didn't come through very well.
And then I put the two halves together.
There are two different colour ways of the blocks -- here is the light grey version.
The plan is to get these blocks pieced this weekend. I'm hoping then that inspiration will hit on how to quilt this and what colour thread to use.
