Quilt Progress

I finally finished sewing all the squares together for my son's high school graduation quilt.

The back and front are completely different - his choice.

Front is on the left. (reds)
Back is on the right. (blues)

The front has the raw edges which will be clipped into quarter-inch fringe.

The back looks more like a traditional patchwork quilt. The two diagonal lines I earlier sewed across each square create a diamond pattern across the entire back.

I have finished clipping in one direction (the columns); now I have to clip the other direction (the rows) and around the edges. It took me about 15 minutes to clip each column. When I tried to do two columns (one after the other) my thumb started to go numb and tingly. I guess that means it will take longer to complete cutting the quilt since I will have to do a little bit each day for several weeks instead of finishing it up in just a couple of days.
