|The basic components are large blocks finished at 6", medium blocks finished at 4", small blocks finished at 3" and 2" filler squares. The trick is how they all go together :0)|
|The cutting requirements are either 2.5" or 1.5" based for the pieced blocks, and there are some plain blocks too - so I can start whizzing through those scraps|
Meanwhile the ladies are getting there. This bit is all pieced together.
Two ladies are still awaiting their makeup... and are holding the whole thing up! But as you can see, there isn't that much more to do for the top to be finished. Whoop whoop!

And I am totally blaming someone else for the fact that I bought this terrific pattern from Jess @ The Elven Garden yesterday, and have started making a throw size for my still to be hatched niece/nephew. I've used some of the left over FQ from the Tokyo Subway and am pulling the rest from the stash. Each stripe of colour uses 6 x 10" squares. The remaining stripes in the pattern are purple and green - I haven't decided yet whether to throw a pink stripe in just in case it turns out to be a girl. It all depends what turns up in the stash :0)

This is the end of the line as far as the design wall/floor goes... so something has got to get finished. It's getting serious. Let's just say I'll have plenty to keep me busy over the Xmas holidays (which are not all that far away).
Hopefully you too have had a productive weekend?
