A Little Bit Closer!

These are my latest blocks! One of them have 81 pieces in it. I now need 31 more blocks to have them all done! I really wanted to buckle down and finish them up quickly but I just don't see that happening. I'll just do a few a day as I have been. Oh, and I got my 2nd row together but just haven't had a chance to get a photo of it yet.




I needed a little change from all of the pink and brown so I made a Dear Jane block. This is the block G-4 called "Shutter Bug", a fairly easy block with 29 pieces. I may do a few Dear Jane blocks in between my Love Letter blocks to give me a change.


Hopefully tomorrow I can get a few more blocks finished. It sure feels good to be this close! After this one is finished I will concentrate more on my Civil War Diary and Dear Jane quilts.

That is a lot of pieces in one block but it is beautiful! I'd say it took a while to do that one.

I'm impressed by your determination, clever girl! But watch out for aching hands, arms and neck, that became my problem after being too eager....
Have a nice weekend!

81? Are you nuts or what? I can't even think of that without my head exploding!
You're nearing the end of it now!
