Subtle Progress

I've been making steady progress with Subtle Charm over the last few days.  All 30 blocks are now completed so now I get to match up all those points.  I'll work on that perhaps later today.  For now, housework must come first and Nick and I both have optometry appointments this afternoon.  It's been a few years since I've had my vision checked, so maybe if I get new glasses, I'll do better at cutting and sewing accurately.

6 of 30 Subtle Charm blocks
After working on so many scrappy quilts in recent years, it does seem a bit strange to work on such an organized quilt of just four fabrics.  It certainly makes it easier to put blocks together in rows, no switching them around to get the best placement or to keep from having too many of the same color or fabric side by side.  
 While my bias edges have been a little bit of a problem (blame my eyesight for cutting and sewing inaccuracies?) I am quite pleased that I have no volcanoes in the center of the blocks, they aligned quite nicely...
...and my points are pretty much on target.  We'll see how they line up though when it's block to block; there may be some easing and stretching to keep them in sync.
