Steps 4 and 5 of Double Delight


Here are my first 2 blocks of step 4. I am finding it amazing that once this block is together, you completely lose the square in a square block look, in favor of the larger design. Too cool!


Here are my first two blocks of Step 5. It's my first time making double nine-patches. I will have to make more, these are looking good to me.


Here the are together. Do they play well together?

     
     My progress as a whole is this- step 1 complete, step 2 complete (all done the trimming-YEAH!), step 3 about halfway done, and this is all I have done for steps 4 and 5. I really wanted to see how my colors were going to come together, so I did a couple blocks early. I will probably alternate on step 3 and steps 4 and 5 as I can. Somehow it makes me feel like I have more accomplished that way.

Looking great! This is so back burner for me it is in another room! I'll print the pattern and figure it out after I get some finishes! I've been starting like crazy the last half of 2008. So, I'm focusing on finishes. (Well until I start this cool turquoise quilt...)

Beautiful... I love how yours is turning out!

I am still working on step 1. Taking my time and getting to know my seam ripper very very well *smiles* but it will be so worth it.

He, he, he --- I looked, but that's about where I am also. Trying to get one block done each morning, before work. My 9-patches needed a bit more color so I've altered my original color pallette just a teensy bit.

Very pretty!
