Bertie's Winter - a quilt in the making

This has been super fun to do. Here are the different parts completed. Each block was embellished with swarovski crystals and/or pearls ( or something equally pretty). They will be trimmed to size in preparation for the next step.....adding half square triangle units.

There were 90 half-square triangle units that needed to be made. Did I mention that they needed to be 2 1/2" in size? They were made using a technique I wasn't familiar with. Once I figured out what I was doing it went pretty quickly with the help of my rotating cutting mat and easy angle ruler.

Then the fun began....sewing all those units together....and putting the top together.

And a top is born!!!

Now to sandwich and quilt it.
