Some big numbers

Whew!!  I finished all 194 of these “eye” things… at last!

Now to join them to the centers.

I finally got used to sewing curves but now….all those intersections…they make me nervous.  These are my first ones…thanks to my trusty seam ripper and a few tries they aren’t too bad.

Hopefully it will get better and easier and quicker by the time I sew 168 more intersections!  Yikes!

Then this morning I finished two more applique blocks. A lot more relaxing project.

This means I only have 18 left to go

…and then 41 pieced blocks.

Math is not my thing but I can count down quilt blocks.  LOL

Love the double wedding cheerful prints. Good to practice joining the melons. Maybe you could share a photo when some are joined?

Your eyelash quilt is almost there!!! Congratulations! I have always wanted to make one... but I'm waiting for a shortcut version, ha!
Your applique quilt is stunning also!

You're brave to do a double wedding ring! Have you seen the video on YouTube from Kaye Wood about a different double wedding ring technique? Maybe you should finish the one you're working on first, then watch it... I wish you good fortune with the rest of the quilt, it's going to be gorgeous :)
