The Assembly Begins

As I promised myself last night, I finished cutting the setting diamonds. Today I cut about 2/3 of the sashing -- I have about 108 pairs cut (out of 154).

I was tired of cutting so I began to sew. Honestly, I was anxious to see
what the quilt was going to look like.
(I know from the photos approximately what it will look like, but
My fabric choices are different, and I paper-pieced some blocks without reversing them to correct for the reversing effect.)

Not everything is straight. Not everything lines up perfectly; however, thus far, I am pleased.

What say you?

All fabric for the cornerstones is cut. About half of the cornerstones themselves have been cut. By the end of the day they will be finished.

R21 - The Last Block!!!

Wow! What a ride! This is the last block in the quilt. Now, just to cut all of the sashing and setting diamonds.
