3 strips down, 18 to go

So this afternoon I started the assembly line, Southern-style. Yes, Duck tape again. Having a solid edge to run my strips against while sewing those "scant" 1/4" seams seemed like a really good idea. At least if they were wrong, they'd be uniformly wrong, LOL. So the 6 1/2" right angle triangle ruler that I bought with no particular purpose in mind came to the rescue once again. The thickness of the ruler makes a great sewing guide.

Here I am all set up to do the first run-through of the last 78 blocks.

Well now, that was fun. Maybe I'll just give them a blue and white chain. Surely they'd be touched!

Actually, the first set went so well, I decided to do a second run tonight. Here they are, all ironed & ready to cut apart.

All set for round four. Might have to wait for Tuesday though. Tomorrow will be busy with the rest of "real life."

Isn't that fun? Love assembly line piecing.

I thought quilting was real life? Hmmm.....that may explain the state of my house.

Looking good sis!
