Happy Ric Rac Quilt

I'm LOVIN' sewing the blocks on this Ric Rac quilt. Even though mine probably won't have any ric rac on it. I try to get at least 1 sewn each day. There are 32 blocks so it's gonna take me a bit to get it done. I hope to get it done and be able to enter it into the HMQS Quilt show in May.

Here' a block I was trimming. Then you turn it over and tape it back together. Karen suggested that we get colored "Scotch" tape to put it together because you can't see where you've taped it with the clear tape and you don't want to overlap the tape because you eventually have to sew through the tape. So I began scribbling w/a sharpie marker on the tape before I use it. I pull out about 18" of tape and scribble then roll it back up and tear off pieces as normal. Now I can see where I've put tape! Yea!

Wow, those are amazing blocks - too bad I hate paper piecing.
