It's my first quilt, and I decided after a while to go with the "quilt as you go" method. I'm glad I did! I finally got done quilting all but 4 of the squares, so I decided to take photos of all of them and put them together in a "mockup" to ensure I liked the placement. And seriously, before I "photoshopped" in the sashing that these pieces will have when they're joined together, it looked WAY TOO BUSY.
But now... now it just looks awesomely tacky, like it should!
The only blocks I don't have individual pictures of are the 54/40 blocks, but they're all the same layout. The pictures aren't the greatest to show color and detail, but they're just for mockup purposes, so I think they serve their purpose well. The other blocks were all of my own invention, except the spiderwebs. I tried "wonky paper piecing" for two of the spiderwebs, but it just did not work out for me (can you see? They look way too wonky!), so I developed my own method to make the other four, anyway.
This will have 2.5 more borders around it as well, so it's not quite close to done yet.
And I also have a few other sewing and knitting projects in the works, too. :)
