Here's how I'm handling this huge, on going process...
First I make copies of a few blocks.
I trim them to size and label them with the block number.
Then I label the colors for each section.
I pull fabrics that I think will work for the block.
I take it to the machine and make the sections that can't be paper pieced.
Then I use those assembled sections and piece them together using paper piecing or traditional piecing.
Finally, I hang them on the design wall and admire my progress.
I still have a long way to go, but I am really proud of the this little collection so far.
It's not something I could work on continuously though, that would make me crazy!
Enjoy every stitch!
The second block in from the right caught my eye. I like the design and fabrics you chose for that one in particular. I made a few Insane blocks a couple years ago and never picked up the project again. I just don't enjoy making them all that much though I like the look.ReplyDelete
I have the book but have never started the quiltReplyDelete
Your colors are awesome! Love how you explain your process. I have the book too, but never could imagine getting through all those blocks. You make it actually sound possible!:)ReplyDelete
Your blocks are so pretty! You're going to have a lovely quilt when you get done. I like the rip twice and move to a different project rule. :-) That makes sense to me!ReplyDelete
Your blocks are gorgeous! I would have to remove the "nearly" if I attempted them however... so I'll just admire yours and stay sane.ReplyDelete
