UFO Challenge 2011-Feb. #10 - Update

Yesterday, I was finally able to rework the cutting directions for this pattern. I now have completed one of the 12 1/2" blocks. There are four 12 1/2" blocks in each large 24" finished block. And 12 of the large blocks in the quilt top. Hopefully, now that I have the measurements right, I can speed piece some of the scrap wedge and triangle pieces, and gain some ground on this UFO. Even if I just get the inside squares of the top completed, for the February Challenge, it will be a great accomplishment in my book. Especially, since I basically had to more or less start the whole quilt top over again. Since I took pics and wrote the directions down this time, I may be adding a tutorial on how to make the blocks in the near future.

This block looks very interesting :) I like that you have used the red as your 'background' colour. I look forward to your tutorial. This block looks a lot like a long skinny quilt project on my list to do one day, I have in a folder, from way back. :) Elly

Thanks Elly, I'll try to post the tutorial sometime in the following week. I had this quilt on my list of to do quilts, forever it seems like. I am excited to see it finally coming together too!
