I decided to sew the squares together in long columns top to bottom instead of sewing the squares into blocks and then assembling the quilt top. I have 5 of 14 long seams sewn. My neck was feeling better but I didn't want to push it and sew any more. We got another little rain shower yesterday afternoon, about a third of an inch. I haven't had to water anything outside for over a week now with little rains several times a week. The areas of brown grass in the lawn are turning green again.
