It's a little intimidating to realize that these 66 blocks in the picture are only 60% of the total number of blocks. Yeah. This is basically half of the quilt! Eeek! Insane! It's going to be huge!
I like seeing the general layout and realizing that all these unmatching blocks fit together in a delightfully colorful quilt. There is one block that I'm DEFINITELY going to redo. And a couple more deserve the chopping block but might make the final cut, depending on how lazy or motivated I feel when that day comes.
Mostly, it's exciting to see the progress and remember the fun of piecing each block together.

Yellow and grey are really popular together these days. For me, though, the grey feels very drab and dry, even put with the yellow. I love the yellow print, and I am happy to put it in another block!

I'll just be sure and place them separately in the final quilt.
Oooh, didn't this one turn out pretty? I basically copied the colors from the book. I'm not sure how this is supposed to look like a jackknife, though. Is it the blue shapes on the corner of the center square? I guess so.
Yeah, I copied this one's color scheme from the book, too. I usually think the fabrics in the book are absolutely atrocious, but for these three, the colors were nice, so I used them. Thankfully, I like my fabrics a lot more than the ones the author chose. But actually, once all the blocks are put together on the final quilt, I really like the effect, even with the individual fabrics I don't like. So I'm excited to see how mine will come together with beautiful fabrics and a fun design!
