Work in Progress: The Bluenose II Pixel Quilt - Part 7

First, let me say that I am writing this on Saturday night as I plan on going into Edmonton on Sunday. Fabricland is having a sale and I need to get the batting for the pixel quilt. Not that I'm anywhere near ready for the batting yet. Oh no, as a matter of fact, I made scarcely any progress on the quilt at all. I barely finished one block, and a simple block it was at that, with large areas of the same colour. 

One important thing I did accomplish, however, was to draw a 1-1/2 inch grid on one of my design sheets. 
I should have done this right from the start because I believe it will make it ever so much easier to keep track of all the little squares and where they go in the block, like this:
I drew enough grid for two blocks, as I'm sometimes working on two at a time - even more challenging to keep track of!
So, if you ever plan on doing a pixel quilt, I highly recommend that you create a grid to work on. I predict that I am really going to need this for rows 5 & 6, the water part of the picture. No large areas of the same colour there...
Did you accomplish much this week or did you have a lazier week like me? Share your link and let us know.


Guidelines for Show & Tell

  1. Link up any recent post that features your current creative project. And it can be a work in progress as well.
  2. Please remember to link to your actual blog post, not your main blog page, so others don't have to search.
  3. Somewhere in your blog post, you must link back to my blog or put the 'Show & Tell' button in your sidebar. 
  4. Please don't just add your link and go. Check out a few of the other links and comment. The best idea is to check out the 3 or 4 links just previous to yours. That way every link will get visited. And maybe you'll pick up a few new followers along the way.
  5. You don't have to follow me to post your link on my blog, but that would be much appreciated.
  6. Have fun. This is a party after all.
