Small pieces, large obsession

I saw this book mentioned on a blog in early summer (but can't remember where now) and was so taken by the cover quilt that I had the book in my hot little hands a few days later.

This is just a quarter of one of the four blocks. A sixteenth of a quilt. And it's big! Each block is nearly 40 inches square.

I have been happily digging through scraps cutting them into wedges for the arcs and piecing a bit here and there while I tried to stay focused on finishing that last top. I may not have as many lights as darks, and I'll have to wait until I have more sections done to see if that will be a problem. Although it requires applique, the amount should be manageable even for me!

I have that book too and love the quilt. May never make it but I shall be pleased to see your progress on it. It looks pretty good from where I am sitting.

Yes, the book is great, as is the first one that came out a couple of years ago. I'm only dreaming of making the cover quilt, so it will be fun to follow you making this one.
