Harvest Challenge: Sneak Peek

Here's a little sneak peek of my mess while I'm working on my block!!! I've just finished the piecing after 4 straight and tiring hours yesterday and 2 this morning, now I just need to put in the basting on the edges of my block and I'll be all set to embellish!
Since this is the biggest block I've ever made at 15 inches square (contest requirement) it truly was a challenge for me!!! Piecing a block isn't a cake walk!!! LOL It takes a lot of thinking things through and pre-planning and readjusting as you piece (at least for me anyway), I also had to fit in at least 6 of the 10 challenge fabrics and use some of the trim that was included!
If you click on this photo you can see a little sneak peek of the block. I'll photo and blog the whole block after I finish basting.

OH, wow, this is going to look so beautiful! I LOVE how you've framed that little piece of floral fabric in the middle of all those beautiful fabrics that you've chosen.

Thank you Bonnie and TattingChic! I just finished basting and attaching the required piece of trim! I'm all set to take photos tomorrow to share the block as it begins the embellishment journey! LOL
