I have now completed eight of the sixteen blocks for the Slow Quilt. Each block is not so very slow, only taking twenty minutes or so to assemble after everything is cut. This does not at all resemble their final arrangement, which will include sashing, but arranging them on the wall like this does have me considering options.
The reddish solids are Oakshott Cottons that I won last year. Each block has twenty-eight pieces that I rotary cut and am piecing conventionally. Paper piecing might have been a good option for the long triangles and diamonds, but they are coming out well with a little care.
The rest will have more peach colors in them. I was very confused at first in the cutting, and found it best to stick with all the green themed blocks. I think I have it figured out now. The results will be more colorful as I make more progress.
Hope you are coming along with your projects.
