Settler's Trail Update . . . .

I didn't have much time to sew last week but I did spend a little time on my Settler's Trail blocks.

I'm in the process of connecting my strip pieces. When I pieced my original strip sets I always pressed away from the background fabric, not open like I normally do. By pressing the seams to one side it allowed the strips to go fit together perfectly. I hardly needed to do any pinning at all.

Once I've connected the strips sets I press those seams open. Here's the back of my block.

I'm thinking I still have around 6,000 pieces yet to connect!
