Hello there quilt-alongers! It took me a little longer than expected to get to a new progress update, but here I am – and I finally feel like I have made progress worth showing off!
Ok, I’m not finished, and I haven’t trimmed any blocks or sewn anything together. BUT! I have completed all cutting, basting, prepping and pinning! The left pile above is completed peels blocks, the right (smaller!) pile is all remaining blocks, ready and waiting for stitching.
And the numbers? 123 blocks completed, 73 to go! Woohoo! Progress had definitely slowed over the past few weeks, because I was busy with swap and Secret Santa packages. But those are now sent off (more on those soon!) and I have made a lot of progress since. I know 73 sounds like a lot still to stitch, but I got about 28 blocks done just in the last few days. I’m pretty excited about seeing the finish line on these and getting to the next step – not that I’m tired of them! I don’t understand how I can keep making these peels and never, ever get sick of them. They’re magical.
Anyway – I assume that anyone wanting to move forward with their projects, as gifts or to just get them done, is doing so (please show us in the link-up below!) and the rest of us are still stitchin’ away. For anyone who would like me to continue through the entire process, right down to the binding: how should we proceed? I’m sure a lot of us are stuck head-first into a pile of holiday crafting now, and I doubt we’re really going to have a lot of time to dedicate to this project until that’s done – am I right about that? I suggest we keep stitching – this will be a lovely project to snuggle up with over the holidays, dontcha think?, with the goal of all having a finished quilt top when we meet back here after the holidays.
