    Someone is going to have a talk with who ever it is that picked the blocks that I am working on. Oh yeah, it was me.

    I finished the first set a day or two ago and started on the next today. I just finished steaming my fingers while pressing the little things. You would think that I would learn to pick bigger squares or ones that had less pieces to them or both.

    They are a 7" square, I was in a strange mood when I was picking fabric so who knows what it will all look like when I am done.

    There is a quarter in the pictures to show how small we are talking about.

    itty bitties I just finished pressing.

    That's what she said, now I like that block it is cute and I know I would have more problems and more cussing trying to do blocks that lil so I'll just avoid the headache and admire your work.. Get an aloe plant and sit it next to your iron you may need it again ;)

    The next seam is now sewn and pressed. A little easier on the fingers as they are now almost twice the size. I will post updated pictures later, I want a few more pieces of it together first. I am hoping to get them on later tonight, but who knows. We will see how it goes in the next bit.

    Pretty colors and tiny pieces. I'm looking forward to seeing the top when it's done. What size will this quilt be?

    so those little pieces turned into these. That is as far as I am going to make it tonight, it is getting late and I am getting tired, not bad since I haven't done this in more than 6 weeks.

    The quilt is going to have 120 squares when it is done, 7" squares, I am not sure of borders or anything else yet. I usually decide that when I see the rest put together.

    I will be adding more pictures as I go along.

    I am just amazed at how precise you are able to get those blocks. They are so tiny!

    I hope you don't find me bold to tell you this but, I was told a long time ago not to use steam while pressing quilt blocks, the bias likes to act up and grow. I am only telling ou this so you can save your little fingers next time. Mary ellen's best press is a joy to use too.

    I don't find you bold to pass on information that you believe is something to think about, I am not sure why I like stream. I just do, I don't have a lot of problem with the bias. I will maybe try the next set of blocks without stream and see what happens.

    Anyone can be as bold as they like with me, even if they don't like it, please feel free to tell me, this quilt is not done for the normal reasons. When it is done I am thinking of telling a story about it. so if you want to question my color choice or style or block selection, go ahead, it would be nice to hear some if it as well.

    I find the more accurate that I am to start, it is easy to carry it on through the project, I have good days and bad days of course, must have been a good day when I did more of that block.

    Here is the next block and now most of you will get where it is going, and can possibly pick out the other blocks that I am going to be doing.
