Blocks, blocks, blocks + more blocks

Do you ever have one of those projects that you initial love but then the more you do it the less fun it is. The Pushme Pullme Quilt in blue is starting to feel a little like that. Luckily, I am almost there.

I made a huge amount of progress at the retreat last weekend and finished lots of blocks. This is my finish for the week. I am going to take the mini win, as I kept to my target for the weekend….sew everything I had cut. I will say, late nights/early mornings where I was up until 1-2 am sewing away.


So, what have I learnt so far about me and this quilt process?  I now hate cutting. I know, for sure, I will never make a quilt where I cut all the pieces first again. I definitely need the break in between….cut a few, sew a few. I have found a new appreciation of those that have all the block pieces all cut, photographed and ready to go.

The good news is, once I am sewing, I do like the block and construction. I like seeing how the different fabrics change the block completely. My favorite of the blocks above is that bottom most left block. Which one is yours?

Anyway, two rows to go and then the joining of the blocks and the quilt top will be complete!! I should hit my November goal….I know what I will be doing Thanksgiving weekend ;-).

Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it up Friday @ Crazy mom quilts + the mid check in for November’s goal “A lovely year of finishes”.
