    I just did the test block which ended up being very sewable. Timeconsuming though. There are 36 blocks and each is 9 1/2 inches square done in a variety of lights and blues.

    The pattern is Nellie's Wedding Quilt by Bonnie Blue Quilts.

    Can't wait to see the completed top. That is a very neat block. The dark blue has the illusion of floating on top of the lighter fabric.

    Beautiful! I bought all the fabrics for that quilt, made one block, and gave up and found another pattern to make! I love it but it's so time consuming!

    I bought the fabric and pattern at the Dallas Quilt Show and have it on my to do list. I know it will take a while but I think the end product will be well worth it.

    I am using triangles on a roll and the triangles are pretty easy. It is sewing them all together straight with a good 1/4 inch seam that is the hard part. I am pressing seams open and that has helped.

    It does take a lot of time. I check each part for measurements and trim as necessary. I find it is hard on my hands to handle so many little pieces so I take a lot of breaks too.

    I am finding that both my specialty sewing feet for the machine make a larger than 1/4 inch seam so I am having to accomodate.
