Wow, some progress

It is taking a bit to get back up to speed making the parts of this block.  I definitely need to spray starch the fabric before I rotary cut the shapes.  


Then I need to pay attention to what I'm doing.  See, a mistake already!


That is much better!


                           

And before I get too carried away I need to do some math to see how much fabric I actually have and how I'm going to slip in those close matches.  I did notice another colour option for the last round but I'm ignoring it.  LOL  Hopefully I have a completed top by next Wednesday's The Needle and Thread Network link up!


edit:  I was getting confused with counting and figuring so I cut off the messy edge,  made another photo copy that is included in the booklet and remade the edge.  I coloured, counted and measured fabric.  I am only short about 8 units and I should be able to move forward with confidence. Here's hoping!

I am still trying to find the error in the first picture - your design is just mind-boggling. I wish you no interruptions while piecing!
