Sasparilla-WIP Wednesday

I am actually working on several things right now. Big Shock, right? But the main thing I have been working on and making great strides at, my Sasparilla quilt for little B. This is a Riley Blake line and I love the 1950's feel of it. In this colorway, I think it looks amazing.
 I finally got all the little HSTs put together, pressed and trimmed. I now have to finish attaching them to each other to create the small blocks.
 I am doing lots of chain piecing with this one and it does help it to go a bit faster. I am using Aufifil 50 weight thread for all this piecing. It also saves so much on thread when there are so many blocks to piece.
 This is what I have so far. Now that I am this far into it, I have found that I actually have enough fabric to make it bigger, as I originally planned. So I will be cutting more pieces next and seeing how big it will get.
 The goal is a twin size for a future  big boy bed for little B. The little HST blocks across the top are probably not going to stay there. Just trying them out. I think they need something to separate them from the others. Not sure yet.
Here is a bit of a close up. I love the way this is looking. I did not realize the big X effect that the fabrics were creating. This quilt is having so much movement when you stare at it for a bit. I hope you are having a great sewing week too. Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced. Talk to you soon.
