Halfway to the top
Well, really that should read "halfway through the top" but that doesn't sound as good! This is the Hidden Wells quilt top with 4 of the 8 units completed. You can get a better feel now for how the pattern comes together - or, at least, how this particular layout does, as there are a number of ways that the individual triangular pieces can be re-assembled. Unlike other patterns where the blocks are mixed up and scattered throughout the top, this design is meant to have each section with all the same fabrics in it, so that the design and colours change across the quilt.
