I'm sure I'll agree with you when it is done.  Right now it is just a pain.

I did two bricks today and have one more to go on whatever block I' on, I have no idea which one that could be.  But something got done anyway.

This  one began so quickly that I thought it would be done fast too. Sounds like baby steps follow giant leaps.

got another brick done the other day.  One more brick today and then I can put two of the blocks together.  That's the plan for today.  I have to get a move on and get some of these completed so that there is room for the projects classes coming up over the next 3 months.

I missed the quilting on one of the bricks in the last block.  How did I do that?  My mind has been having one of it's bad times.

Well the block with the missed brick is frogged.  That will make quilting the brick that got missed easier.  And hopefully with the garden constellation gone I'll be able to make rapid progress.  I had hoped to be able to get it done by August 5, but with class on July 30th I don't think so.  Nice plan though.

Ok finished the missed brick block.  Tore out the block where the checkerboard was on the wrong side and redid that block.  Then took the block where the quilting was finished and finished it.  So I have exactly one row to go and then I can put it together and cut and bind it.  I might make the 19th deadline if I don't get to side tracked with the classes I am taking.

I think so too tina.  Today I finished quilting all the cream bricks.  So I have 3 blue and 3 red to do and then I can finish putting the blocks together.  Then the rows, then cutting the seam allowances, and finally binding it.  Still a lot to do.  Maybe I'll accomplish some more today.

two more blocks done.  So just 2 more to go which is 3 bricks then the blocks then the 4 rows.  I'm hoping if I push I can get it off of the sewing machine before thursday.

Well I pushed and the sewing machine pushed back.  I was having all kinds of problems with the bobbin, I didn't realize the problem was that the top thread had jumped out of it's hook.  Who knew?  I got one of the blocks done and I'm quilting the final two bricks.  But my shoulder gave out so I stopped.  Hopefully if I don't push it and give it a little rest I can still complete the blocks today.   So much to do so little time.

the blocks are finished, sewn into rows and sewn all together.  Now it is the cutting and washing that needs to be done.  I don't think I will finish today but it was a good effort.  And the cutting table is cleaned off and ready to lay out the blooming nine patch so I'm a happy camper.

I've started cutting the seam allowances.  I think it is harder on this pattern because things aren't in a row.

The colors are washed out but other than that it is a good picture.

I finished it.  i washed it.  I dried it.  and several of the seams fell apart so this morning i was back at sewing it together.  Now it is in the bag to take to queen bees.  That may be my last raggedy brick for awhile.  There are lots of other things to do.
