I've made progress this past week and here's what's done so far. I'm displaying this sideways only because it's easier to pin vertically rather than horizontally to the upper half of my design wall.
Make note that the lower half of the design wall is missing. That's because there's this little, well, not really so little anymore, cat that seems to think the design wall is something to jump up against and get her claws hung in the styrofoam and dangle there like a pendant. It's shredding the design wall so I removed the lower half and tucked it behind the headboard of the bed and draped a heavy blanket over it. She's a stinker! Maybe she thought that since we named her Raven, she could try to 'fly' high.
--- (See, she's not so little anymore nor is she often curled up sleeping! )
The sashing strips are pinned right sides together to the block rows; this is only half of the rows but the others are pinned as well. Maybe I'll get them sewn yet today.
