I have mentioned that am quilting along with both qals on this to keep my momentum going and to help with a quicker finish :)
The qals are from two great bloggers: Angie from GnomeAngel, who is doing one by skill level starting with easiest and the one I started with, Kerry's from verykerryberry which is going numerical/alphabetical
The majority of the blocks I had to finish to catch up were from the GnomeAngel qal.
Celebrating neighbor's generosity in times of struggle. I traditionally pieced this one.
Celebrating a grandmother raising her grandchildren. I paper pieced this one.
This one celebrates taking time to play with your kids so I used a fun kitty conversational print with piano and drums. I paper pieced this one.
Celebrating happiness in owning one's own farm through struggle and sacrifice. I paper-pieced this one.
This one celebrates a woman raising her younger siblings. I traditionally pieced this one.
Celebrates teaching your children to earn the money they spend. I paper pieced this one.
Whew! Glad to be caught up :) That means I now have 23 blocks done of the 99 presented in the book. About a quarter of the way there!
