These are wonderful and amazing that you are hand stitching all of these...LOL 28 years...wow!
Handstitching them all. WOW! I am starting mine in January, and hope to be done by the end of 2013. That is 4.3 blocks a week. My goal is set really high, lets see how many I actually get done.
16muddyfeet the blog where I saw first saw the Dear Jane the blogger hand pieced all her blocks and had the quilt to flimsy stage on about a year or a little more - if I do recall - it was a long time ago. What method of construction are you planning to use?
True I am hoping that I can pick up the pace once I am retired! Although I have been off work for a whole with this bum foot and it hasn't really helped.
Zoebird2005 I will be machine piecing as much as possible. I don't do much handwork. My hands don't like it.
16muddyfeet I can't imagine how difficult it will be to machine piece some of those tiny pieces. I know the foundation piecing method works very well and I think fairly quickly. But I am a bit challenged by those darn foundation pieced patterns and the whole working backwards. Good luck with your quilt - it will be nice to see your progress.
Your blocks are beautiful!
