Hawaii Sunset Rises Again!

After six days with migraines and a half a sick day from work, today is the first day all week that my head didn't hurt at all!  I was SO happy when I got done with work I came home and plunked down in front of my sewing machine and remained here for eleven hours!  

 I sewed all the little geese into rows and then sewed them on the blocks and sewed the cornerstones on...
 Then I was slowed down a bit because my iron decided to die before I could iron the big blocks with the geese!  I got out my tiny travel iron and did the best I could.
 VIOLA!  All twenty five blocks are sewn (but not yet ironed) and I am really ecstatic that I got this far with the blocks.  I still need to buy the blue that goes in the sashings and border but I can work on the setting triangles in the meantime if I want.
Whew!  Thanks again to Andra and Amy for swapping fabric and geese with me and for the tantalizing blog posts that have helped spur me on! :)  And thanks to Jo's Country Junction for getting me hooked on this quilt in the first place!

I see another finish in your near future! It looks like a really fun quilt to make, especially if you are swapping fabrics and units with friends!

I am on the hunt with my guilty friends for this old magazine, if not I am going to order it on line.
Glad you are feeling better.
