I started cutting this morning and this is how far I got with my blocks by lunchtime. Half square triangles are so much quicker than hand piecing!
I made a little mistake calculating my fabric and I'm two blocks short, so I'll have to put it aside for now.......not sure how that happened. All I need is two 8" squares grrrrr.
My SIL's birthday is in August so I'm really happy with my progress. The next question will be dark thread on the light zigzags or light thread on the dark zigzags? Given time constraints I think I'll quilt with perle.
Hope you find time for some sneaky stitches this week.
