My Kona Natural arrived (only 10 days from the US, I think this is a new record for me!) so I'm back to plugging away at the Octagonal Orb blocks. Four down, eight to go!
I have to say, piecing the colourful bits was much more enjoyable than all of the trimming, lining up, pinning, pressing, and adding setting triangles is, but I've finished 1/3 of the blocks already so overall not bad.
For fun, here's a view of the back of one of the blocks. I mentioned pressing, right?? It's crazy the amount of pressing involved in these blocks, and you wind up with quite a bit of bulk right at the centre of each orb, which I hope isn't a problem when it comes to quilting.
Back to summer......
