Layer Cake Quilt Along Progress and a Halt

Still quilting along (without a layer cake).  It's been four weeks and I now have eight 16 1/2" purple and gray blocks.

For my red version, I got the star block made but got discouraged when I realized that I sewed the stripes in different directions.  I don't want to pick it out.  I'm not enthusiastic about continuing (probably taking on too much at one time).  I have the HST's all made for 3 more blocks, but instead, I packaged it all up and will put it away for now.

I think it's good that you let this quilt rest... must be doing too much right now to enjoy this process of making the blocks now. You'll have a nice UFO to pick up someday when you are ready to go again...
