I'm making progress! I think by the end of the weekend I will have the center of this quilt together and I'll be ready to start cutting fabric for the much-more-detailed border.
I know lot of people hate foundation piecing because of the hassle of removing the papers. That part has never bothered me and I generally remove paper as I do the piecing. As soon as a piece is enclosed I remove the paper behind it. It's a huge mess on my sewing room floor but a quick vacuum handles that. I don't worry about the little bits left behind. Once the quilt is washed all of that will just become part of the batting.
The weather was beautiful yesterday so it was nice to open the windows and to take my crochet out to the back porch after my dyeing session was over. I do love this time of the year.
