I finished the quilt top! I'm really happy with it, although it really looks nothing like I'd envisioned at the beginning. I set the blocks with 1" sashing.
I finished the top and immediately started a new one. I'm using my other hoarded jelly roll, from Tula Pink's Saltwater line, to make a Zipper quilt.
This is going together soooo slowly. I hate piecing rows. I hate pinning. It is so slow and tedious! And with 36 narrow rows, I am having a hard time forcing myself to slog through. But I'm just about halfway now, so the end is in sight. As much as I'm not enjoying the piecing on this one, I am excited about the end result! I think it's going to look really cool.
So. Many. Strips.
(ps: Happy birthday to my sister Abby! Love you, Abby Lee!)
