Another milestone reached. All 10 rows sewn, now to sew them together into the final top! And for a little “snack” break, I bought a couple of really cute kits from Hatched and Patched.

72 nine inch blocks completed! I got a notification from my photo app that i started printing the shapes on fabric FOUR YEARS AGO. It’s fine. We're here now and I’ve already begun sewing the first row together.
