I laid out the 56 pieces first and one by one, I began to slash and add one inch strips.
So here I go - I've got 25 blocks done, 31 to go. My blocks are 8" x 9". My best guess is that the original quilt has blocks 8 1/2" by 8 1/2" . Mine won't be exactly the same as the original - but that's okay because it's my version, it's just a little bit chutney.
I love the way it looks! Happy to have had 4 1/2 days off in a row due to some unusual snow fall in North Carolina! Hope you're warm wherever you are!
Update: I've made a few more this past week - slowly but surely getting it done!
