Jack's Chain - Rows 1 and 2

The first two rows of my Jack's Chain quilt.  I am having so much fun putting the rows together - all by English Paper Piecing (EPP). 

There will be border blocks to even out the edges, although I kind of like that wavy look on the left side. 

I have not joined the rows together yet, so all the outer edges still have paper in them, giving it a slightly wavy look.

This was taken on my dining table as my design wall is full of Moda Blockhead blocks.  The sunlight is wonderful in the dining room and you can see it shining through on the table.

Thank you to SoScrappy for sponsoring the Rainbow Scrap Challenge which ended this month.  This challenge kept me on goal for making the sweet 3" nine patches.  I hope she does another one next year, although I don't think I will start another EPP project this ambitious. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with family and friends and can find some time in the next few hectic weeks before Christmas to get some quilting done.

Thanks for stopping by,

Your quilt is going to be fabulous! I can't imagine doing all that stitching by hand.

This looks so difficult, well done on a great quilt.

This is so lovely Teresa...maybe ambitious but well worth the effort :-) (I've started machine sewing one of these - have't got very far - wonder if I will end up handsewing it?!)

That is going together so nicely. How lucky to have enough space to lay it out.

Wonderful to see the Jack's Chain going together. I made a different version from Quilter's Cache that was pieced not EPP. I'll bet it goes together a whole lot easier with EPP. I'm in the middle of a second one I should get out and work on since it's about half done. I just don't like those Y seams but I do love a Jack's Chain. Wonderful work!

This pattern has been on my To-Do-One-Day list for about 20 years but it's too intimidating to contemplate (I don't do EPP). yours looks great!

I love the wavy look too. This pattern is on my "to do" list. Thank you for sharing,
