Tessellated Leaves - One Third Pieced

Tessellated Leaves – One Third {WiP}


I have pieced one third of the Tessellated Leaves quilt top (3 rows). The rows went together very nicely, and I have only had to go back and replace one mis-made HST along the way so far. I taped the completed third up as high on my wall as I could reach (standing on my kitchen chairs), and I was able to get the last row of reds onto the design wall for the first time. The pieced top will drape a bit on the ground when I finally get there.

You know I love tracking and reporting fun statistics about my quilts, and here are a few I just put together for Tessellated Leaves. I have 3 hours in the design (including arranging the color order on my design wall), 6 hours in fabric prep (that was a lot of cutting to do!), and 15 hours in piecing. That means I have already put 24 hours of work into this quilt. Right now I am estimating this quilt will take a total of 80-90 hours to complete, so at least I know I am somewhere over 25% done with the entire quilt. Whew.
