Snow Days - ALMOST DONE!!!

I put some time in and finished all of the blocks for the center of the Snow Days quilt!  I cannot quite believe that I am this close to finishing!  And, it didn't seem like as big of a job as it did any other time I thought about working on it.  I guess I just had to have my head in the right place, hey?  

Here are the rest of the blocks...
Cut the Corners block 12"

Cut the Corners 6" and 9" blocks

Martha Washington Star block 9" block

Martha Washington Star 12" block

Martha Washington Star 6" block

These blocks took a lot of time to make...and some patience. Each Cut the Corner block consists of 33 piece and each Martha Washington Star block consists of 28 pieces.  That is a lot of cutting and piecing!  They are lovely blocks, though, don't you think?   

These next few days are busy, so I am unsure of when I will get the center pieces (all 46 elements) put together.  It will, no doubt, take a lot of arranging and rearranging and I want to take my time with it.  

In the meantime, I did a lot of chain-piecing yesterday...
More on this next time.

Today is Friday...have a great weekend!

Wow Jacque! What awesome blocks! I am so impressed. You do such nice work. I love how all of your points meet up perfectly.
Just lovely. You are so much closer to getting it done now Aren't you? It will be a work of art.

You do beautiful piecing work and the blocks will be wonderful with the stitched ones.
