Don't look at this post and think "she is such a fast piecer". I pieced these Tree of Life blocks some time ago. I already had the sashing strips and cornerstones cut out. Today I laid them out and started sewing them together. I also am sewing more 1-1/2" strips for the pieced border on this quilt as a leader/ender whilst I piece the center.
There is a single-fabric inner border, then a pieced border of 1-1/2" pieces, then a larger outer border.
Here are some pics of the process. First, my 1-1/2" border started, a few strips outside the box (literally), and then my blocks and my progress so far today.

I guess it pays to sew instead of take a nap on a Sunday afternoon!
