Pickle Progress

I am back to piecing on the Pickle Dish quilt. I think I worked out the mental math error I had made before.  And I'm trying to get over my need to keep the variety of fabrics evenly distributed.  (Scrap quilts make me anxious.)

I spent an hour removing the paper from the back of all the arches.  I think it is much easier to piece curves without the paper, and it saves tons of time later removing tiny bits of paper from the back.

It took me a while to remember the order in which to put those rings together.   I'm sure glad that I splurged and bought this magnetic pin holder for myself last time I was at my LQS.  Those curves are far more successful with a half dozen pins holding each together.

Tea break is over.  Back to the grind.
