All 12 sections of Hearts and Hands are complete.
That's 70 blocks stitched down in place.
Next step is to sew the sections together which will create three horizontal seam lines and two vertical seam lines that will require the last 47 blocks to be stitched in place. At that point, the center of this quilt will be complete.
But.....my fingers and hands are sore, so I am setting this aside for a few days just to take a break. I have been working on this quilt almost to the point of obsession, so I am sure it won't be long before I am back at it.
At the rate I have been working on this, I am sure it won't be long before this is a top waiting to be quilted (Stage III).
