... and reality check!

Yesterday Jo posted the final pieced block - a log cabin - for the crumb along quilt.  I haven't made the log cabin block yet, but I thought I'd show you what I've done so far...

Not much!!  I could swear I'd done more blocks, where'd I hide them?

Looking at them all together I can see which blocks I like best, and which will need a bit of help to blend in with the rest.  For example, that second one in the second row gets lost in the border, that's definitely a re-do.  I have lots more crumb blocks from my bin that I can use but they'll have to be chosen carefully for the look I'm going for. 

At this point I'm thinking my favorite blocks are the flying geese, hearts and stars.

Well, that's it, I have to get cracking to get 42 blocks done - along with binding two quilts, quilting two more, cutting more fabric for the cruise...

Sew forth and sew on til later!
