    How big are the blocks and how many do you have to do. They are really pretty

    My blocks are 7" square & there will be a total of 36. These 16 form the center unit. They will have a very narrow inner border around them. Then there are 20 more that surround them with another border then a bigger appliques border. The quilt finishes at about 60" square.

    We are doing this as a cyber sew. I am hosting it, so I have done the center blocks.

    The official start date is June 5, but a few of us have JTG (Jumped the Gun). Anyone is welcome to join us. My signature has the link.

    Thanks for looking & for all the compliments.

    That's only because I made 8 blocks at this sitting. I tend to work in an assembly-line fashion. Do the same thing for all the blocks at one time. Like I have all the fusible drawn & cut out for all 36 blocks. I did fabric selection for all 16 center blocks at the same time.

    Now I am drawing the design on the outer 20 blocks. I had put that off until I got my light box.

    The next thing I'm doing is sewing the 16 blocks together into the center unit & then I have to decide what I'm going to do about that little inner border. Haven't given it any thought as I wanted to see what the blocks would look lke before making any deciesions.

    The other way would be to sew on the coloured background first, then cut away the black, then do the central part - more than one way of skinning the proverbial cat

    I have a light box and can completely understand how helpful it will be to you in this project.

    You ladies are doing a fabulous job on these blocks, they are all soooooooo beautiful! :thumbup:

    I really like your background on this one Elle (not the black, the bit in the middle), good choice

    I think it will be nice to have a place for your eyes to rest occasionally :D:

    Ok Im so excited to post the photos of my first block. I love it! Its hard to tell but my background fabric is dark brown. And Im using cranberry colored embroidery floss. I found the deep v the most challenging part. I also did my embroidery without a hoop because I was afraid of hurting the needle turn and I had to be very careful not to pull too much. Well let me know what you all think.
