I finished the four center blocks for my wreath yesterday. Thanks to strip-piecing methods, these blocks worked up fairly quickly despite the little 1-inch finished squares.
Next, I started on the eight outer blocks of the wreath. Ugh, it took an hour just to mark eight strips in preparation for the 90-degree points! At this rate, I would be lucky to finish the top before Christmas. So I went back to the drawing board and simplified my design.
No more points! I began piecing my leftover green strips of various lengths to neutral strips of whatever length needed to make 8.5 inch strips. This is going much faster. If I had the whole day tomorrow just to sew, I could actually finish most of this project before Thanksgiving. But I don't, so maybe I'll finish it up on Friday.
