Oh-Ma-Goodness; It's MARCH Already! I'll save you the suspense and tell you right up front: Finishing all 63 blocks for my son's high school graduation quilt is my one-and-only monthly goal for March. By which I mean, finishing the octagonal centers of all 63 blocks is my goal -- I'll be deciding on the corner triangles once all of the octagons are completed and arranged to my liking on my design wall.
|Nine 11 Inch Kaleidoscope Blocks Completed|
Behold, 9 of the 63 block centers are completed and up on my design wall. That's one row down, and six more rows to go. I'm planning to make three blocks from each fabric, so there will be much greater variety in the finished quilt than what you see on my wall right now.

Keeping my time constraints in mind, I'm trying not to be TOO neurotic about the center points matching absolutely perfectly. Meaning that I'm taking care to match them as perfectly as I can the first time, but have resisted the urge to grab my seam ripper over minuscule misalignment that you can only see from 2" away with your high-power reading glasses.
