I finished the half irish chain blocks and went ahead and assembled them. I decided to change the background fabric to a rust color to make it look like a border was sort of built into the center of the quilt. THIS IS NOT the way the pattern shows. I don't mind if someone else wants to do this also, I just wanted you to know that it is not the way this quilt was designed by Sue.
I also made all of the blocks and hsts for December. I know the pattern isn't out yet, but I just looked at the quilt and figured it out. I'm trying to get a jump on this quilt because I know how long it will take to assemble in December. Also, you know how busy December gets.
