This is a photo of the entire quilt........

Fabric by Marcus Brothers
As I cut the pieces I place them on a paper plate and mark each plate with the "piece number". The plates can be stacked and set aside when I'm not working from them, and of course you can reuse them!
Marking the backs to get ready to make my half square triangles (HST), I had to make a total of 128 of them, 64 in one color combination and 64 in another combination.
Chain piecing the HSTs.
Now I check the directions to see where all the pieces fit.
Here are the pieces laid out, now I just need to sew them all together.
Hope I inspired you to challenge yourself to try something new!
P.S. Sorry about the spacing of the photos and words, I was having a terrible time laying this out for some reason!
