    Tired of the Back to Nature progress? If not--peek here.

    The first picture is the 24.5" center block. I posted the very center earlier--I didn't realize just how much was to border it. It was very tricky for me--many Y seams. It still measures 1/4" too big.

    The next are of the four corner blocks--they will have some log cabin work around them. They are 9.5"--48 pieces in each of those babies.

    The next step is to make all the flying geese for between the first set of eight blocks I posted here and there. Then I'll finish with the log cabin corners and flying geese borders. Once it's all together I'll see how big it is and decide just how to get it to the king size they need!

    I'll add the picture of the whole quilt from the pattern so you can see what I'm talking about.

    I put this aside for a few days to work out a scrap quilt with leftover horse fabric... some to donate, some to sell. I'm off for a week, so I'll see how much I can get done.

    Very pretty pattern. Try working on quick table toppers when you get tired of it. Not only will you end up with MORE UFOs, but it will give you the stamina to tarry on! LOL

    I took a class where you refigure the pattern by using i/2 square triangles to make the diamond shapes and no Y seams. Check Minnosota Quilt Co for videos, or you tube.

    Thanks for the kind replies. :-) I almost have the horse quilt together. I think it's going to be amazing. Very easy working with 3.5 strips! lol
