100 Steam Punk Blocks


I thought I would update you with the progress on my Steam Punk quilt lest you think I'm ignoring it.  Last week I finished the last of the 100 blocks.  Whew!  Of course this is not how they will be laid out.  They will be set on point with 16 of these blocks to be chopped up as side settings.  My plan is to use Essex Yarn Dye in black as the sashing color, which will read as a dark grey.  The finished quilt size should be approximately 95 inches square.  I'm glad I soldiered on with these blocks as the larger size will suit our bed. 

Because I love making mosaics, I thought I would make four smaller mosaics so that you can see all the blocks a little closer up.
