I've finished all of my Christmas projects. I got an early start for once. Usually, it would be unbelievable that I would be working on anything but last minute projects. This project is anything but last minute. This is a 22x28" quilt that is made from a Primitive Gatherings pattern. I made hundreds of 1" and 2" half square triangles. I mostly worked on these when sewing with friends because they mostly took time and not much thought. THIS part takes a lot of thought. I am sure that there are easier ways to do this, but I decided to just grid off the layout sheet and mark as I go. I should have made a copy, but I didn't think of it. I don't think that I will consider making this again so it's not a big deal. Unfortunately, I already put what I thought was a block together, so I am already working out of my grid. Oh well. no biggie. I decided to just color areas in red as I pieced them. There is a LOT to be said for paper piecing. It is so tedious to piece otherwise. But like I always say, " making miniature quilts has greatly improved my piecing skills on normal sized quilts". You should give it a try.
