Chic Country progress

Chic Country in progress
I need 32 more orange units for the border I'm planning for my Chic Country, but I have enough units to assemble the center of the quilt. I have started joining units into blocks, and blocks into larger sections.

a few blocks in short row, but rows are not joined yet

So far the points are all matching up pretty well without too much fuss.  There is a lot of pinning though.  I hate pinning! I think I'll join the blocks in sections instead of rows to minimize the number of long seams with a lot of points to match.  The total number of points to match will be the same either way, but seems less daunting when tackling just a few at a time!

  1. Absolutely love those splashes of orange. This quilt really shimmers!
    I am assembling the blocks of a king size quilt right now, and I am doing sections rather than rows, as well. You are right--it is less daunting!

  11. Your quilt looks amazing, I change the construction too. I divide a top in the 4 sections, that way I only have one long seam, it's so much easier to handle.

  12. Wow! The orange looks amazing. I pin everything, thanks to years and years of garment sewing. Can't wait to see what the border will look like.

  17. Perfect Curvy Points, all cheery and bright. With all the dreary, bleek days we have had, your Chic Country gives hope of Spring! :)

  18. It's looking sooooo good! It's funny what each of us dislikes or likes. I don't mind the long seams at all, probably because it means the quilt top is almost finished :)
