I've picked it up again!
Thanks to a few questions from Jan at the latest Prairie Quilt Guild meeting about my clamshell progress, I've started hand piecing it again. The middle diamond block is my latest finish which makes it block #10. I was sure it was block #11 but after a fruitless search in my sewing room for an errant block, I've decided that was wishful thinking!
Here are all the blocks I've finished so far on my design wall. Ten blocks finished, only 8 more full blocks, 10 half blocks and 4 quarter blocks to go. After that there's a narrow sashing to hand stitch between the blocks and finally borders to add.
In other words, this is a long term project. As I see it, I have two choices. Either I can decide to make it a wall hanging instead of a queen size quilt or I can persevere but I may have to take it to the nursing home when I move there! Just kidding, I hope to have it done much sooner.
Other news: I have finished the wolf! He is generating a little bit of a love/hate relationship with everyone who sees him. I'm afraid the sentiment is running to the "spooky" side. Pictures coming soon!
