It took a while, but its done!!!
So far this block is the only machine pieced block in my Morrell Quilt. We were given instructions for a "short cut" method using machine piecing, so I decided that option looked a lot more manageable than hand piecing 381 one inch squares of fabric!!!! Yes, there are 381 pieces in that 10 inch block!
The next 2 blocks took substantially less time to complete!
I have a broderie perse block almost finished and another one prepared ready to go.
It is the 2nd day of Spring here in Melbourne. My plum tree is covered in blossom.
We had a clear sun rise this morning and some more hints of sun during the day. Temperatures are warming up. However, we are expecting lots of rain over the weekend. Sounds like perfect quilting weather to me!! :)
