Thursday progress.......

I managed to get 4 blocks sewn together yesterday, one 14" and three 10.5".
Here is how they work together. Three 7" blocks = two 10.5" blocks.  Four 10.5" blocks = three 14" blocks.  This is like a modular quilt and these are all multiples of 3.5".  I love math, sorry if I lost some of you.  I don't have a clue how I'm going to put this together yet.  If I knew that I would be bored with it and wouldn't want to finish it.  As it is, there are more blocks to be made and fun playing on the design wall.
I'm assuming I can call this my Valentine cactus now.  I think this plant bloomed already in December.  I have a bud on a white one and a pink one and they have already bloomed before too.  There are 4 plants that haven't bloomed yet.  I'm still hoping.....

They are really all neat together. Good day to stay in and just sew. As I read your weather on the right side of your page it says -29*F not a good day to stick your nose outside. Have fun with them. Chris

How interesting to see the Bear Paw in these bright colors. Your quilts are awesome! That cactus just blooms whenever it wants to bloom. Stay warm.

Have you considered making one very large one? I can see the others placed around a very large one...

Your blocks are gorgeous. The colorful bear paws look a lot like cactus blooms, when you put them together like that! I appreciate the math.

Love what you're doing and am eager to see how it evolves. I'm with you.. too boring if I know ahead of time how it'll go together.

Ah yes it is more fun to play with the design as you go

I can see, the fun you are having with these blocks. The different size blocks you decided to use, plus the fabrics are truly the most exciting pieces of the new year. This one has been such a treat to watch grow.

Your blocks are looking so good! Can't wait to see what you do with them. And I'll take Christmas cactus blooms whenever they happen!

Also going together are two 10.5" blocks with one 7" and one 14". I love it when quilts don't have predictable seam lines! The colors are superb!

Your bear paw blocks are super. I like your choices of backgrounds.

I love how the blocks are turning out!! My LeMoyne stars are also a modular quilt and I am having fun with them!

THere are so many ways to lay it out that I would wait till you are through making blocks and then see how many 'extra' you need to fill in the gaps!
