I finally finished piecing the blocks for the king-sized quilt I started in January 2023. I did not actually buckle down and finish it in August last year like I announced, but I’m so much closer now! Just have to press and trim all 72 blocks and then arrange them, which is where the magic happens:

The values of the colors and the diagonal piecing make a pattern! I’m so tickled it’s working… and 85% done. (I am absolutely not quilting this myself and may even have the longarmer bind it.)
