I finished 5 more blocks at the end of the day. I started the day with cutting more batting, piecing more backings and other misc. things. I'm on the last side of the hand stitched binding that I'm working on.
Here are all 8 finished blocks. I haven't made any of the pieced sashing strips yet. Although I like it without sashing too, there are too many colors and it would look splotchy. The sashing will actually soften it.
