I mentioned before that the instructions for this quilt are all in German and while google translate does provide some help it is far from perfect. So I spend a lot of time just looking at the pictures and then just winging it. So far this method has worked okay for me for the most part. I did choose at the start of this project not to sew all of the blocks together to avoid those partial seams which I am now pretty proud of myself for doing. Because of that I was able to put together the first segment of the quilt top last night. It might not look like much yet but I am already in love with this quilt top. It's been a long time since I worked on something without sashing between the blocks so I really love how these different blocks just sort of melt into each other. It's a lot of fun but I know I still have a long way to go.
Finally this block doesn't allow me to avoid those partial seams altogether so I am doing the best I can with it. I was able to get to this far and then well I sewed it together and took it apart what seems like 100 times. I know I am suppose to sew those two little triangles on next but I'm not sure where I should be sewing them. If anyone has any advice I'd love to hear it.
