Plodding on!

I have finally finished my tessellation blocks. Mind you, I still have to applique some of them to the background, but the piecing is done! It took me quite some time as I usually only sew by hand during our quilt group meetings. Here are my last four blocks:
and here they are all together:

Now I'm in the process of sewing 144 hourglass blocks for the sashing. 
Lots of small blocks
 and lots of cutting  
Not quite finished yet, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Have a great weekend.

I am in love with your tessellation blocks. They must have taken ages to hand stitch and your colour combinations and careful cutting make them look incredible.
I also saw the post on the houses and downloaded the pattern but haven't actually made the block yet. The Japanese fabric is a good choice. The textures in the fabric will give it a lovely added depth.
