I really don't have much time to piece, so I kinda fit it in between homework/kid/school. That means that I don't measure my progress by how long it takes to finish the block, or how many days that it takes to get it assembled. I'm of the "any forward progress is good progress" school of thought.
There is definitely noticeable forward progress: 5 Town Square blocks. I need 25 of these blocks for the quilt, which calls for 50 12 1/2 by 12 1/2 inch blocks, a pieced border & 2 other thin borders. I've gotten a wild hair and decided to sash all the blocks with 1 inch strips of black to add pop.
