The Covid Quilt Finished

In March of 2020 I started mindless piecing a leader-ender 16 patch using 1-1/2″ squares. The pieces became blocks and the blocks became piles.

The first week of April, those piles became a quilt.

A total of 360 blocks, or 5760 pieces.

The finish isn’t large, but I love it. It now occupies the bed in Sparkle Jane’s former room.

Slow Assembly

While it takes a long time to build the blocks for a quilt made out of 1-1/2″ squares, it also takes a long time to assemble those blocks.

There are 360 blocks. The final layout will finish at 80″ x 72″ and contain 5760 pieces. One. Block. At. A. Time.

360 Of 360: A Covid Year In The Making

March of 2020 I started a mindless leader-ender using 1-1/2″ squares. I wasn’t sure where it was going. No one guessed where we were going.

On Sunday, March 21, 2021, I finished the 360th block. And have declared that that is enough.

It is quite a pile.

This is the last block. Such a place of honor.

And now to sew them together. Bits and pieces…kind of like this past year.
