Okay, this completes the first unit of the quilt called "Unit 1". This is what it looks like opened up and pressed flat.
I did each of the above steps 4 times. So I have 4 of these unit 1 pieces ready now.
I cut the pieces over the weekend and I just did these first 4 unit 1's while watching American Idol.. and they took about an hour and 15 minutes.
I'm sorry to say that I will have to stop here tonight because that is all I have sewn!! I will try to do the "Unit 2" block tomorrow night during Idol and post afterwards.
