Makin' some more Sunshine!

The Sunshine Quilt has gone from leader-ender to up-front-and-center. I've been sewing the hour glass blocks only. I finally laid them out on the floor to see how it is looking.

Here are 180 squares, each one 3.5" square.
If I sewed them together at this point, it would be 36" x 45".

I don't know yet how large I want it to be; I can make a lot more blocks, but I would have to add a larger variety of fabrics. Right now there are nine different fabrics here.

I've linked this up with Amy's Friday Sew and Tell at
