More Jack-the-pulpit blocks completed


Hi everyone, I hope you all had a good day. Today I worked on the quilt I'm making for my girlfriend who is getting married in July. I'm kind of falling behind on this project. So, I've decided to put it ahead of the other projects and get these blocks done. I have to make 20 of the Jack-the-pulpit blocks for the center of the quilt. They will all have sashing between them. Then I have to make a flying geese border. The Jack-the-pulpit block takes quite a bit of time to make. Almost 1 hour per block. I'm usually able to find a method to spead up the process for my quilts. But this one is slow and steady. I think it's because it is partly paper pieced. Today I finished 5 blocks. So now I have 10 blocks done. Only 10 more to go. I really love the way they look. I will keep working on these this week. I hope to be able to have the center of the top done by the end of the weekend. Then I'll be able to make the flying geese blocks. I hope you all have a good night.

Hugs

Ariane

It will be beautiful and I am sure she would settle for a picture of your progress in a card if you simply can't finish. You don't want to rush it. It will be fabulous.
