Here’s the virtual quilt so far.

LUS 45 BlocksI’m really trying to put my head down with this project now and I don’t think I’ll start anything else (in patchwork) until it’s done. Part of me wants it all finished but another part doesn’t want it to end because I’m having so much fun with these tiny blocks.

    you have so much patience! When I think of the number of tiny pièces you’re sewing together for each block, and at the size the finished quilt will be . . . so many seams ^^

  3. You are making good progress! I admit I find the number of blocks quite daunting. Love your simple colour scheme of white and blue.

  4. Wow, you’re whizzing along with this 🙂

    You are doing a great job with those Y seams. You may even get to enjoy doing them! The quilt is going to look fantastic. How different the designs look in your colour choices. Yours is bright and cheerful but the one in the book is browns and dull shades.

    • There’s some lovely ones on Google images. The Y-seams are growing on me, especially when they can be machine sewn.

  6. Ooh, I love the Glad Tidings block.

  7. The blocks are so beautiful, they are perfect!!!!
