I decided to get all the red diamonds pieced into pairs for the remaining 21 blocks of the Christmas Fireworks top. There were stacks and stacks of the diamonds like this one.
Each group in the stacks contained 16 of the diamonds.
So I loaded up the needle case with needles threaded with red thread.
Then it took just a few minutes to get each stack pieced into pairs like this.
Each stack turned into stacks and stacks of pieced pairs of red diamonds. Now all the piecing left to do is either continuous piecing or curved piecing or both. That piecing should go faster now that the diamonds are all pieced into pairs and the 21 blocks may get finished by mid-January – may being the operative word.
Everything for each of the remaining blocks is in this container with the exception of the black fabric framing pieces.
I know this is a little out of focus, but I love the look on Baxter’s face.
