This is just part of the 240 blocks completed. Yes, 80 blocks each quilt - three quilts. Good thing I love to make blocks!
How do you complete that many quickly? There are several ways and I used a lot of different strattas that were then sub-cut. Then a lot of chaining all those pieces one right after another until a block emerged. Mass production at it's best.
This is what is left of the pieces I pulled and this.........
all the pieces that weren't used. See, I said there was enough for 10 quilts. There are three prints on the very top I haven't used in the fronts that are going to be pieced for the backs. That way every single print is going to be used in each quilt - as the client wanted.
The first quilt is going up on the design wall - a flannel backed table cloth tacked to my louver doors to my washer/dryer. Now to power sew those flimsies! I know she said to take my time as there was no hurry, but I would like these out the door before the holiday.
