Custom King-Sized Phoebe's Flower Box Quilt - Progress #2

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Phoebe's Flower Box quilt blocks are coming along!  The inner sections are made and ready for the gray sashings to be attached to two opposing sides, creating a square block.  They will be 8.5" unfinished, and there are a lot of them - I didn't count!

The sections went together quickly using strip-piecing methods.  After sewing together two WOF strips, I laid two strips sets right sides together with the seams butting together and subcut 4.5" sections.  I then pinned these subcut sections before moving them, since they were already perfectly lined up.  This resulted in nine duplicate blocks, but I figure in a quilt this size it will not matter.  It also made the process much faster because I didn't have to make additional decisions about what fabric should go where, then put them together and pin.
