I See the Light
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel on my raven quilt. Yesterday I spent most of the day, all of the afternoon, cutting the pieces for the last two squares. I was ready for one of them and decided to just finish it up and get them both cut out and be done with it. I'm not sure about the sashing yet. The outer sashing is nothing but tiny triangles. Torture. Never going to happen. I might do small squares at the intersection of each block, even the outer rim sashing. I've changed other things, shimmied some pieces, left a piece or two out and will change the final block placement of some (my newspaper training says don't have something looking OFF the page) but basically, it's the design from the book.
I know I'm close to finishing because my mind is starting to wander to other project ideas. If I'm piecing something I stick with it - for the most part - until at least the piecing is finished. I don't like having many started but nothing finished at least to the point of having a completed top. It's kind of like reading a book. One at a time.
