I'm making progress! Or at least I was before I left home for Virginia. Did you know that I can write posts and schedule them for later posting? It's a handy feature if I have time to work write ahead, which I usually don't. Anyway… I posted the beginning of this quilt on 4/17. Now it looks like this on the wall:
I've broken my own rule and have started stitching because I'm both out of stitching and on deadline. The house, sky, ground and fence are working. The tree trunks are way too dark. I'm glad I took the photo because it's even more obvious here than on the wall.
The bits off to the right are the windows and doors that I'll be reverse appliqueing and then sewing to the block. The off-white/brown print at the bottom may be the dress on the figure of my grandmother. There are still quite a few pieces to cut but I'm happy with the way it's going!
