Diagonal Madness - Part 1

I have just finished piecing the center portion on my Diagonal Madness quilt from one of Kaffe Fasset's books. Last December, when I was in waiting to start sewing for the high school play I cut these squares from my scraps. I was more concerned with having enough yardage then the exact layout of the colors.

I have been sewing it on and off between projects. I found was getting tiring and then the rows (which are sewn on a diagonal) began getting shorter. Light at the end of the tunnel.. The center square measures 72 x 60. There is a nice patch border which I started, but will put aside as I has been inspired for my next project - Pants - Vogue 2532. I actually bought this pattern in 2001 and never made it. It is currently available in latest Vogue pattern book, so I think it is time.
