I did it. I completed my challenge for the One Thing, One Week Challenge over at Amy's Creative Side. Nary a long thread to be found hanging off of these blocks.
Aside from being happy I only have this to say: I HATE TRIMMING! Especially 200ish blocks of it.
However, despite my hand still aching today, my biggest hurdle on finishing this quilt is conquered. Now I just have to work on sewing up the individual blocks into their bigger blocks, and then sew together the top. I'm not sure yet how I will quilt it but I have time to think that over as I work on getting there.
