I literally have my work cut out for me. All the fabric is cut out for Ethan's clamshell quilt. THAT took a long time! I spread out all of the pieces, and it is going to be a pretty big quilt. I "fussy cut" the peacocks and positioned the pieces together, so the bodies are more or less intact. I added some Liberty peacock fabric in the mix and I like the result. I carefully stacked all of the pieces in order, and am sewing one row at a time.
I am already done with two rows. If I keep going at this pace, I will finish the quilt in less than two months. Not bad! I am also making a Liberty sampler quilt along with my mom-in-law. We both love Liberty fabric and were deeply inspired by this quilt. The directions to our first block can be found here. I might make my first block today. I made Dacia's delicious chicken salad for lunch today and can't wait to eat it. Hope you all had a restful weekend.
