A Small 10% (roughly...)

I finished blocks I3, H7, D3, E2 and RS6 this weekend. RS6 was the most challenging, with inset seams. Somehow I made it through...thankfully, is an incredibly helpful blog with great tips on some of the more challenging parts. As well, has some wonderful tutorials on doing inset seams and y-seams....all of which are extremely helpful on this journey with Jane Stickle!

I have completed 24 blocks, so I'm just about to hit 1/10 of the quilt. Imagine...and I've put hours into it! I can just imagine that Jane must have put several hours into each block...designing, choosing her fabric, making the block itself. I wonder if she drew it out first so she could choose her colorway? I have this mental image that she started with the center block, then made the blocks that surround it, and went from there. Sorta like a medallion quilt, only with teeny, tiny blocks and pieces.

Surprise surprise, I hate the way I3 turned out. That's the block with the dots on the bottom right. Those dots just look lame. I will wait until I have all the blocks completed before I decide to redo it. It may not bother me so much in the grand scheme of things!

Wishing you all a safe and warm week ahead. Try to stay dry and keep on quilting!


  1. Congratulations on completion of so many blocks & triangles in such a short period of time.

  2. Wow, Rachael. I did not know you had a blog!
    I saved this in the "Daily check" file on My Favorite.

  3. I kinda like the one with the dots!
    Congrats on being 1/10 done! I've still only got ONE block done...I need to work less and play more! ~grin~
