Happy St. Patty's Day...Hard to believe spring is around the corner already!
This is what we look like today:
Here is a layout of where I am going with this project:
So, I have been busy on the outside blocks. The top right is where I started with Virgo. These blocks will be the main constellation, along with the Decan constellations that help complete the story, which is what Decan means.
So here is Virgo, along with the fabric attached for the backing, which is not finished yet.
Next comes Libra, with a count of 43 also!
Each block will be backed with a new fabric not previously used, with a label on the back.
Scorpio is next, with a count of 44!
Saggitarius is the next, now going vertically, with a count of 37!
Capricorn is the next Vertical block, with a count of 46:
If you look for these stars, they will indicate the count on the constellation circle from ancient days...
I use the same two stars, but each block they will be in a different combo or design!!!
And now Aquarius, with a count of 42, last in the vertical on left side of quilt:
These are what I have completed so far...working on Pisces now. This brings my count to 1074!!!
I am not finishing these pieces till I tackle the center piece. So there's no telling what I may still add before completion!!
Here's all the blocks laid out on the floor...the paper center has moved around, no fear, I know what will go where!!!
This layout will also create four new corners of the quilt. So I have already designed in my head what will go in each of them!!! (Pisces is missing on the lower left, because it is on my table!)
Well, thanks for following my progress on this 2020 Challenge!! This is a fun and challenging project. Stay tuned for more!!!
