RSC - Final Month
Once these are done, I will have enough nine patches to complete my Jack's Chain quilt. I hope to have the quilt completed and ready to give to my wonderful brother Jack for his birthday in September.
I have already completed 11 of the Jack's Chain blocks - with 35 more complete blocks and 35 partial blocks to go. I counted up the pieces that were needed for this quilt yesterday, and kind of wish I hadn't - as it is quite overwhelming:
Large Hexagons - 52
Half Hexagons - 16
Connecting Triangles - 470
1 " Squares - 3, 198
Total pieces = 3,788
Thankfully, I only have 20 more nine patches to make and that is the bulk of the pieces.
I am thoroughly enjoying the process though, and I know I will be a little sad to see it come to an end.
