pinkie pie progress

I don't think any other words can possibly describe my latest attempt at making a quilt for my middle daughter other than complete and utter madness. Here's what I've been up to.

I took this needlework pattern for Pinkie Pie and decided to turn it into a quilt. I must have been high on lots chocolate and caffeine when I promised my daughter this quilt and decided to turn each and every one of those 4410 cross stitches into a 1" finished square.

Fun, isn't it? I'm looking at the whole experience as one big precision sewing lesson (trying to see the glass full here :)

Each block is a 10" square. So far I have 10 block finished, only about 34 more blocks to go, yay me!!! And yes, I decided to piece even the blocks that are completely white. I simply could not bring myself to slap a large 10" square of white fabric next to all those teeny tiny color blocks.

OK, off I go. Lots more piecing to be done.

Hope you all are having a wonderful and relaxing weekend. Svetlana
