It has been taking a little over an hour to complete each block (which has been done while watching Big Bang Theory during what little free time I have in the evening). I have approximately 8.5 blocks done (only have a picture of blocks 1-5 though). I also bought a book by Jinny Beyer about hand-piecing and her techniques. –I was so into the book while reading it while I had a few minutes before meeting a friend for dinner, that I ended up being late because time slipped away from me! — Oops!
