I started with 4 sets out of the 11 that need to be completed
Progress was excruciatingly slow. The process itself is so easy, but it is also very slow.
I actually started making them two at a time because the pace was killing me.
I am still struggling with the Arcs, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel. 9 out of the 11 arcs are completed (when I took the pic the last two arc were missing one color - thus the tail).
Last weekend I went to the last class in the series and we discussed putting the pieces together.
Going from this...
Everyone at the class wanted to walk out with a block made. I personally had no intentions on rushing through the pieces just to see one made. I told the instructor that since I am so controlling I would need to finish up all my components first before I put together one single block. That way I would know I had all the background colors I wanted and didn't cluster any particular color. She then confided that she had done the exact same thing! I wonder if she said that so I wouldn't feel like a control freak? Hmmm..
I got a lot more of the taupe backgrounds cut (bought some more of these to calm that yellowish undertone that quilt was having). The instructor was nice enough to open the door to another "finish it day" around April - May, which will allow us to work on the quilt and then come in to wrap things up.
It's a long haul but I am really loving the colors and now that the tedious arcs are almost done I think things will move a little faster.
