Just Take 2 quilt progress

Hi!
I'm making great progress I think!
Since the middle to the end of July, I've made over 40 blocks!  I was working ahead as the blocks came out, but then thought I should just worry about catching up!
Except for a large block, I'm half-way finished the hand applique, I've finished the first quarter of the quilt of 27 blocks!
Here is a series of 2 parts of the 1st section... (somehow, there is a part missing in these pics!)


I'm into about 13 blocks into the 2nd section!
Wahoo!

Here is the latest block, number 42 I think.  It is 12.5 inches, so I've joined up with some link ups!
for some reason, as I printed out the blocks, they actually finish about 1 inch too small, so I've had to add to the outside, or in the case of this block, which was to be 4 x 6.5 inch blocks, they finished about 6 inches and 3/8's, so I had to trim and add some sashing to give it the right size.  This seems to be happening to the paper pieced blocks.
It is a mystery quilt, so no pictures of what it will look like!
So forget about my giveaway, ending Sunday Oct 28, so go HERE here to enter!
Talk with you soon,
Take care, Leslie

  3. I've had that same problem where my blocks are too small and I've had to add sashing to them. So you aren't the only one. This quilt looks great.
