Another Day of Crow's Feet

I like to steam my quilts before applying the binding - just to make sure all the shrinkage is out of the center before stabilizing those outer edges for good. Once that binding is on, the outside edge won't draw up much if any. And so Grid 3 got steamed today, and while it's drying, 4 more crows feet blocks got made. A lot more fun, I decided, than sewing on binding...

Just six more to go! These are taking me about 45 minutes each to sew together, by the way. Then I plan to sew a 2 inch strip around each block so that I can square them up to a uniform size. With so many people contributing blocks to this project, they naturally are varying a bit.
