More Harlequin Progress

I am almost half done with the "ears" for Harlequin-Johnny.  I have fifteen more sewn, which, when added to the 28 previously sewn, makes 43 corner ears complete.  I also have six more pinned.  I need to do a Big Bang marathon and get them all done.

I have come to the conclusion that I really enjoy cyclical stitching, though I would prefer to have some shorter term projects in the mix.  I am still cycling though Dear Jane, Grand Illusion, and Harlequin-Johnny, with the half square triangle quilt as my leader and ender project.  When I finally have a finish, I am going to add Pierre Lapin into the cycle; it has been languishing for a long time.

If I keep plugging away, I think Grand Illusion will be the first flimsy completed, then Harlequin-Johnny.  I only have 40 Dear Jane blocks completed, so as you can see, that one is a long way from completion. 

I think I have 700+ HSTs completed in my leader and ender project, but it takes over a 1000, so that completion is also in the distant future.  I really need to do some quilting too, since I do not want to just accumulate flimsies.  I have been lusting after a long arm for a long time, but that is on the back burner for now.

Your Dear Jane is going to be beautiful. I love the colors. Keep plugging away and one day before you know it she will be finished :)
