Arkansas Traveler Update


Arkansas Traveler Blocks Done!

Very quick update today on my Arkansas Traveler quilt. I finished the blocks! Sewing the four quadrants together for the blocks actually went pretty fast. I think it took about 2 hours to assemble 24 blocks.

Arkansas Traveler Quilt Top Layout

I’ve started laying out the blocks for the final top. Sorry about the bad phone photo! I still need to decide on a backing and order that, but things are coming right along!

    It looks beautiful! We made some of these blocks for my do good stitches circle a couple months ago so I know how long they take, I don’t know if I would have the patience to make that many :)

    Your blocks look so beautiful! This is the one block that defeated me in our Stash Trad bee. I had to cry “uncle” and tell Lee to put my block on the back of her quilt or throw it out. :(
