Almost done! I have the rows sewn together diagonally and just have to finish sewing the triangle end units together and onto the ends before sewing the rows to the rows. Soooo - very close to being done! At first I questioned some of my brighter blues, but now that it is together - I think they look good. And - way in the beginning when I was cutting it out - I knew I didn't have enough cream prints so I used some light blue prints here and there - only for the smaller pieces though - and they blend right in just fine.
This quilt takes a long time to make - it isn't hard, just time consuming. Ummm - in my book anyway... now - for some of you who are doing a Dear Jane quilt or lots of applique, or? - well, then you might think differently. But me - well, my favorite patterns tend to be strip sewn then cut apart, which definately would not be this pattern, LOL. As a matter of fact - I was so relieved to get this top up to this stage that I immediately cut my Moda fat tower into 2" strips and zipped up 20 Gratitude blocks (a little intermission, you know?). So - it probably would be done if I hadn't taken that detour, but hey, the detour is looking pretty good too!
