Mission Accomplished

I guess I just needed Tea to challenge me.  I finished the last two blocks of the center 169 in  my Dear Jane quilt yesterday.

I-12 Fred's Square Fair.  I simply rotary cut and machine pieced this block.

And appropriately named for the final block...
L-6 Maze of Madness (never even noticed the name all the months I was avoiding it).
I did use paper piecing for the center of this one, then added the outer two borders.




And here are all 169 if the blocks in a virtual layout.



They probably won't be arranged this way when I start piecing them, as I want to distribute the colors better.

For now..Hallelujah!  I finally finished these blocks!!!!!  Feels great!

CLAP, CLAP! Great job with getting them done! I've never been a task master online before. My friends are going to laugh when I tell them. I keep them busy all the time too.

Wow! What an accomplishment! When I arrived on your blog I didn't know what you were talking about so I went over and checked out what this quilt is about. Wow! Yours is looking good.

I'm not a quilter (always wanted to try, haven t had time - yet) but I saw you were from KS so thought I'd say "hi"
