First I had to sort out all the blocks I've completed. It was a larger pile than I expected, which is good because I often felt like I'd sew and sew these blocks and not see much progress.
Then I laid out all the blocks for row A. I'm missing one...
...so I whipped it up. Here is A8.
All of row A is complete - that's 13 5" blocks.
Next, I cut about a gazillion 5" x 1" strips for the sashing between the blocks. And I forgot to take a picture.
Here is the row all sewn together - with my helper. It's so long that I almost had to stand on a chair to get this picture. It will fit on my design wall but I can't get back far enough to take a picture of it.
I think my homework for Sept is to have the first four rows sewn together - that's what I'm going to do anyway. I need to make up some more blocks before I can sew any more rows together.
