At least the first week ended up to be easy with 192 4-patches. I've decided to follow Bonnie's color suggestions but as I want to make this quilt from my stash I ended up having to use different grays as I only have fat quarters or half yard pieces at the most.
Now that the first part is done, I can get back to the two baby quilts I am piecing. One is for the new daughter of a colleague who decided to come three weeks early - clever girl, who wants to have a birthday two weeks before christmas? - and the other for a 1,5 year old grandchild of another colleague. A bit of "mindless" piecing in the evening is just the right thing I need to clear my head and get ready for another workday.
