The quilt is coming along fairly nicely. I was able to integrate a few foxes and polar bears into the design.
You can see the before (rows 4-6 here):
And then the after (rows 5-7 here):
I actually swapped the pink and yellow crosses, then made some other substitutions with the new fabrics (seen below).
I finished sewing the fourth row last night and cut out almost all the material for the 7th row. The current plan is to stitch the rows together when I get the first six pieced together, which should be over the long weekend. That would be just over a third of the top done, and I'll have a much better idea just how hard this will be but also how nice it all looks together. After that, I'll just decide on whether to put on a border and how thick it should be. A lot of work, but starting to feel worth it.
