Stitch-a-long still going strong

Well I am way behind but am still chugging along. I gave up just the other day on hand piecing all the 1 1/2" squares. I hand pieced all of them into two but once I got to the four 1 1/2" blocks I gave up.

Then I made a huge mistake and machined ALL of the two patch units into blocks of four - then I read the instructions........Only 27 (?) were required. doh!

I really wanted to see some of these squares attached to a block as my goal by the end of next week is to have the first row completed.

I have yet to stitch my little 'string' for my tag.....

Finding these chocolate blocks terribly difficult as I think I have used some 'drill' cotton scraps and its quite thick.

I have another two blocks already cut out with applique ready to be sewn. 
So my motto is slowly but surely. 

Keep up the great work everyone.

Happy Stitching
