A couple of years ago I started paper piecing a quilt. It was a huge undertaking and I put it aside after making tons of little hand pieced hexagons. Well, I decided to finish it this year and make it an Anniversary Quilt in honor of our 40th wedding anniversary. ( I had way too much handwork in this baby to just give it away)
I have been slowly finishing the flower hexagons, making blocks, adding sashing and finally, starting quilting each block. Whew! This is still a lot of work. The finished quilt will be a raggedy quilt because those are easier for me to piece the rows together on my small machine.
Here is a picture of the quilt being blocked out on the floor. I have to look at the pattern and make sure I like the placement of the flowers. All the blocks are not quilted yet but, I also decided to make a little pattern on the back using solid green and a few white squares ( I am just a glutton for punishment!) so, I needed to get the pattern down so I know which blocks need a white background.
I guess the the best thing is that progress is being made and it will be finished in 2015!
