BTCT Update

I've been poking away at this over the summer and now it's the perfect time to get back at this quilt. Today is my first day of Unemployment Enjoyment. I have my resume updated, have started looking for work, and will stay positive that a good job will become available that matches up with my skill set. In the meantime..........
Let's QUILT!

I've assessed this piece and I have 15 of the 25 blocks completely outlined in the white thread. The other 10 are in some state of finish, some just need a few more things outlined and others have not been touched. Nothing has been done on the border outlines. I'm focused on the outlining, this is where I start when I pick this up and then I like to end with a little of the x hatching.

One stitch at a time, that's how this will become a quilt!

That is some pretty intense cross-hatching. This is going to be an heirloom!
