Royal Squares Quilt

I had some free time this week so I decided to start sewing my Royal Squares quilt. First I had to sort all of the jelly-roll strips. This is only half of them.
Then I had to decide which strips to sew together in twos.
Above are the second half of the strips that are sewn in twos. Next I had to cut the strips in the top photo in half and put those strips in groups of four to sew together in strips. 
I  sewed half of the groups of four today (no picture) and I hope to finish the rest over the weekend. 
Those of you who follow my blog, know that I am not a quick crafter and this will take some time, but I am enjoying sitting at my sewing machine for some mindless strip sewing. Of course, choosing which strips to group together was not all that relaxing as I am somewhat particular as to what looks good together.
I am not sure that scrappy is really for me. 

Thanks for stopping by!

As long as you are enjoying your crafting time it doesn't matter how long it takes, just have fun with it all.
