This thing is going together so fast! The blocks are really big, and they’re all put together with straight seams, so you can really fly in the assembly process.
I am pinning carefully to keep everything lined up and precise. So far it’s looking really good and I haven’t encountered any severe issues with misshapen blocks or wonky rows.
I’m almost half done with the assembly on this quilt. Should have it done by this weekend.
The blocks go together in diagonal rows. Each hexagon block has two triangles sewn to it to make a parallelogram and the straight sides make it relatively easy to sew together.
I finally figured out the top edge. These photos give you an idea of what it will look like when it’s done. I’m planning on a 2 or so inch border of the grey guinea flower around the perimeter of the quilt. It might give the effect that the blocks are floating.
I just love this quilt. I wish it photographed better!
