Quilting In The Forest Progress

The piecing is going well on my Trend Tex Challenge entry. Because there are 164, 1-1/4" HSTs the quickest and most efficient way is to sew them using a paper foundation. I always write my colours on the back of each section to guide me as I go. It's a bit like assembling a jigsaw puzzle.
The HSTs formed where the blocks intersect are even tinier, finishing at 3/4".
Since the snow predicted for this week appears to no longer be in the forecast, I am hopeful of a good solid week of stitching.

  4. All I can say is WOW. Can't wait to see this. As you know I love foundation work. And you are sooooo..... organized. Good luck with all of this
