The Colorful Quilt Block E

Ok, I did the E section. Yesterday, I showed the cut- out   pattern pieces, in three sections. The parts for the background, pp parts, parts of the border that are include in this section.


Now I line them up according to the instructions. Here you see the Background (top) the pp strip and the last two are just cut from fabric. This is the first part of E.
Here is the second part.



Here you see the part of the border that has half the star (bottom), then the other half of the star block, above that the fabric piece and the two little pp parts. These two parts are all sewed together now according to the instructions.



Here I have pinned the sewed parts on the map and marked the marks. Then I will take it down and sew these parts to the rest of the quilt.

Here it is on the wrong side. I wanted you to see how it looks on the map.



So far I think I am 3/4 of the way. I am encouraged today to do another section lol.

Here it is on the right side. I'm afraid I pinned it a bit crooket.



The D circle is still free as some other parts have to be done before that part can be sewed in. I hope I have helped to show those who are interested in doing something like this, that it can be done if done a piece at a time.
