I got the base squares sewn on one strip tonight and I also pinned 2 bags together. Going to cut out more bags and get the pieces pinned. Not much of a blog tonight, but I am making progress. I'm trying to decide if I should do all of the base squares for all eight strips before doing the 6 inch squares. The base squares feel like they take so long to do and the other squares (6 and 3 inch) seem to fly. Plus I'm getting nervous about getting it done.
