I normally take a several week break between piecing rows but I wanted to get the center section completed. It wasn't fun and I had to force myself to keep going. Just a reminder, these blocks finish at 6".
First of all, the replacement block from row 4. This block fits in with the rest of the quilt. So much better than the previous block.
Some blocks are brighter than others. That makes the quilt more interesting.
If you have a good memory, you will notice the octagon block is made with the same fabrics as block #18, the one with over 200 pieces. Remember, I've told you I can't seem to be able to count. I way over cut triangles for the other block so I used them up in this block. This beauty has 100 pieces in it.
The star in the top right corner has 87 pieces but it took hours to sew. She turned out pretty nice.
The bottom left block is just one of those weird blocks Salinda threw in to use up fabric scraps. That's my opinion anyway.
The bottom right block has the largest number of pieces in this row, 112. I am very tired of 1/2" HST's!
The top block has the fewest pieces, only 9. Quick and easy. I've been looking for a small striped fabric to use in this quilt and used it in this block.
The bottom left is another different block.
The bottom right is one of my favorite blocks. The pinwheel had more 1/2" HST's though.
And these are the last two blocks in this row.
I am so glad to be halfway finished with the center of the quilt. Now I will be decreasing blocks in each row.
The next section will be sewn separately then sewn to this section.
The triangle blocks on the center row will be added after the next section is attached but they are already pieced. I am so glad to have gotten this much completed this past sewing season!
