My goal this weekend was to complete this BOM quilt top.  I had two blocks to complete, then the sashings around each 8 inch block to make it a 12 inch block and the sashings between the blocks.  It was a fun journey, and I got better at being more confident about those mitered corners.  I guess that is a plus. :)  Jackie Robinson's design and fabric.  My job was just following the directions. :)

Updated 9/15/2013  The sun is shining today, so I could get a picture of the entire quilt top to date.  However, stay tuned for another update, as I am taking the plunge to expand this into at least a bed-sized quilt next weekend.  I will be shopping the additional fabric on Friday night.  Similar, but not the same....

Beautiful!  Are the blocks paper-pieced?

Nancy, the blocks are not paper pieced.  Most of the pieces are 1 1/2 inch square after putting two together.  I think the largest block piece was 3 1/4 and then that piece would be cut diagonally into quarters, making it small.  I'm not afraid of the number of pieces,  I am tired of working with blocks with 50+ pieces (someone said the worst one had 89 pieces) that are so small.  I am inspired by three of the blocks and am working to blow the pattern up to  twice the size, depending on my scrap supply.  Sometimes these little bitty pieces actually work best for scrappy quilts.
