Hello all Quiltvillagers!
Whew! Made it under the wire! LOL!
Here is my humble entry...
I worked away over Christmas slowly, due to an injury, I am able to sew, pin or press for less than an hour at a time, and with household schedules, usually only once, maybe, twice daily.
I loved every stitch of every piece! I did work on it every day, even to press groups of blocks or units.
My sewing room looks like a bomb went off, fabric scraps all over, these are my colours, I had to jump in! When I put a sash row and then the main block row together, I left it overnight in my ironing board. The next morning, in the bright sunshine, I walked in, those pink flowers were dancing! I was in love!
Thank you very much Bonnie!
I just have 3 rows of border units on and two rows of main blocks together.
I have all the main blocks together and most of the border units.
Yes, I will keep working away at this...
The hint I have, is I made mine scrappy, used all scraps, except I had to purchase more of my white with black fabrics online as they were my neutrals and I did not have enough to finish off step 2, so those were done over Christmas.
Also, for anyone preparing for Step 2, I like to press the small corner squares for Method 3, vs marking with something. I just fold over, corner to corner, quick press, and then have a nice mark to sew against (not inside the fold), plus both the pink and black units press nicely.
Will show again as I progress.

Take care, Leslie
