Well I started working on this flake for June and feeling a little lazy I decided to not use two shuttles but use the work arounds for one shuttle and ball... oy... the work arounds just don't work as well as using two shuttles I wish I had just filled another shuttle! LOL Now that I'm half way through I'll just finish it anyway.

I started making a larger block with four small blocks from my Cream Crazy Quilt Throw. I figure if I make these larger blocks maybe it will be easier to keep working on them in larger chunks at a time. At first I went to lay out all 48 to see how to put them together but what I saw was it doesn't really matter they are all really well randomized in the piecing so I can just throw 4 together and it will work...I'll make it work! LOL I forgot what the size was going to be so I had to check back on my blog posts and found that I had decided on 8 blocks by 6 blocks. So I'll need 8 blocks of 4 and then 4 blocks of 2. I might add the blocks of 2 to some 4's to create 4 blocks of 6 which would make it overall into 8 larger sections to work on before piecing those together. Anyway 48 single blocks just feels so overwhelming, which I believe is why it's sat for a few years with just a little work here and there. It feels a little overwhelming to piece these all together too but I think if I can get going it will start to snowball for me. Crossing my fingers that I can keep it up...I kinda see it as a miracle that I even have all 48 pieced in the first place!!! HAHAHA I started in Sept. 2007 finished piecing in June 2009, and now starting to put those together in Aug. 2013 sheesh!!!
