I am on the home stretch! My goal is to have the top finished by the next guild meeting, which is October 3. I already had the blue string blocks finished and today I put them on the design board with the Ohio Star Blocks. This morning I finished up the last of the red string sections.
Phew, these red triangles took the longest and there weren't even as many of these as there were Hour Glass Blocks. I definitely know that chain piecing makes things go faster. I wasn't able to do that with these string blocks though. I took my time finding strings that were just the right length - I hate to waste fabric, even string fabric. Now that they are done, it will be a breeze to add the "wings" (which I have already started). Once the wings are on all I have to do is piece the rows together. I even have the borders ready to go. I Can't wait to see it all together. I am totally in love with this quilt!
