36 Pickle Dish Blocks

Whoo-hoo! Huge whoop-whoop today! All of the Pickle Dish blocks are sewn. 36 blocks. I've been working on them since November.

They still need to be squared up. I added an extra 1/8"  to the outside edges when I cut them because no matter how carefully I stitch and press curved blocks, they always come out just a little distorted. This way I can square then up nicely and that extra will be trimmed off.

I'm thrilled to have all the blocks done!!! Here are some more photos, just because....

This never was intended to be a speedy project, but it's a satisfying one so far. I'm really pleased to have reached this milestone.

  3. Beautiful blocks! This is such a graphic and dynamic set of blocks. Congrats on getting them all finished.

  4. Looks wonderful! That is a tough quilt to make! You need to celebrate when you get it finished!

  5. Congratulations on getting on the blocks pieced. It looks great and I bet trimming and sewing them together is going to be very satisfying.
