I managed to find a couple of hours yesterday afternoon to spend on the oriental quilt. I managed to sew two rows of blocks (5 in each row) together which now gives me a total of 3 rows. I am thinking of doing a part "quilt as you go" . I come up with these ideas in the early hours of the morning and my thoughts are to join up the blocks as I have done in the rows already below and then do the "quilt as you go" in rows instead of individual blocks. I will have to give this some serious thought before I get too much further along.

I would be interested to hear if anyone else has tackled something similar and if it was a success or failure. As I think the process through I cannot see a great problem but then again!!!!!!!

This photo gives a better idea of the pattern and fabrics.
