I have finally sewed all the pairs of quarter blocks together. It took a long time.
I started on Saturday and finished on Sunday. Of course, I couldn’t sew all day both days, but I did spend a good portion of my time on the project.
One thing I can never get over is how much space is taken up by the seam allowances. The spaces in the photo (right) show how much space I gained by sewing the blocks on the left.
Once all of the pairs of quarter blocks were sewn together, the piece looks ‘normal’ again. Of course, I have to sew the pairs into blocks. Then we’ll see the spaces develop again.
