Beautiful photos keep coming now. I haven't even started on this month yet, but we are only midway of Feb so no hurry, I mean I know this is not that timeconsuming

Barbara, I love the terra cotta you used for your setting triangles, and the slat and lattice borders really pull a lot of great colors together.

I really like the lattice border too. It was easy and fun. I removed the paper as soon as the 2.5" blocks were trimmed. Most of the piecing went very easily, there were only a few I redid--mostly when 4 lattice came together--if they were off enough to be noticeable, I fixed them.

Question:
Guess how long it took me to do 72, 2-1/2 blocks tonight?

Answer:
Two complete movies!

Hubby lent me his computer, and I listened to two movies that I know pretty much by heart. It was nice. I've never done that before and I think I enjoyed my time a little more, and I think I finally understand paper piecing a little more. I still had to redo 2 of my 72 because I had the center piece with the wrong side out, but overall it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Tomorrow, I'm hoping to finish the remaining and sew them together to make the lattice. I thought I could finish all the blocks tonight but my eyes are tired (too much concentration I guess :roll: )

I'm curious...which two movies did you watch?

I always measure my bindings by the number of movies I can watch while sewing them on. I love both - the hand sewing and movies, so it is an especially favorite step in the making of a quilt.

Nothing to fear here, JoJo! They just sew together like any plain ole 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" squares! Piece o cake!!

You can follow Sue's instructions to press the seams open, or follow mine to twirl the intersections, or just press them to one side. Whatever works for you! :D
