Garden Party

But it's no party.  I've been cranking out quilts with pieces in the 2.5 to 3.5 " range.  Because I'm trying to finish UFOs I dug one out and chose Garden Party by Bonnie Hunter.  This quilt has 200 blocks with 17 pieces each.  The strip sizes are all 1.5.  I'm currently working on the 81 sashed nine patch blocks.  Then I'll work on the half blocks that serve as side setting triangles and corners.

For comparison I'm showing an almost complete nine patch block against my last quilt block.  5.5" versus 8.5" with the latter only having 5 pieces.

It's gotta be done eventually so why not now?

Just adding the last piece top and bottom which will have a cornerstone.  I only need 202 of those pieces!
