Zen Garden Blocks

Yeah! I managed to sneak in some time this week to get a start on the blocks for the Zen Garden quilt - so far, so good!

This is just a small portion of the layout, as I don't have enough room on my design wall for the full quilt. But I'm happy to finally have the blocks done after some very early morning chain piecing yesterday.

Now they'll have to wait again, as I'm busy quilting Andrea's 85" x 85" quilt with lots of ruler work in the stars and a bit of freehand work in the setting triangles. Took me 2 hours just to stitch a 14" section all the way across but it's turning out nicely, which is well worth the time.

I left off with the echoing around the applique, and will add horizontal straight lines in the background. Hoping to finish this quilt up sometime today or tomorrow.

Then I can get back to the Zen Garden - nothing like staying busy.

Have a wonderful weekend quilting!
