Bit of a set back - not the last four blocks!

Though I haven't updated this blog for a while, I have been working on the quilt, albeit a bit spasmodically.  I suppose it is inevitable that the pace lags a bit on this sort of project, because life gets in the way and life in the form of a collapsed drain has managed to intrude! 

The set back wasn't that though!  It is simply that I miscalculated the number of small blocks.  I thought these were the last four -


but when I laid everything out on the spare bed this morning, I discovered that I needed three more, making a total of sixty six.


As I said in a previous post, I am now not drafting exclusively Sundial block patterns, but taking ideas for blocks from other quilts made around the same time e.g. in the first picture only the two top blocks are from the Sundial.  I have just seen a lovely star block in a picture of an old Dutch quilt and I am going to draft that.  Back to the drawing board!

The blocks look wonderful!
I think your fabric stash is somewhat more eclectic than mine, and very suitable for this project.
Succes!
