Making Progress on Fair and Square Quilt

Over 1500 blocks cut and sewn together. Some of the 4-blocks didn’t square up evenly to 2.5”. Those blocks will be saved to make 2” blocks in some future project.

I learned to cut strips and blocks slightly larger than actually need. It’s easier to square the blocks, less opportunity for errors, and in the long run less waste of fabric.

Now, to sew the 4-blocks together to make 180 8-blocks. The top picture gives an idea what the blocks will look like against the 4.5” red squares.

Note to self: Be careful about alternating the blocks when sewing.

I have a lot more cutting and sewing to get to final design (see picture below) but, the important things is I’m enjoying the process.
