current project-Bonnie Blue Quilt Kit

This is my current piecing project. My Aunt Mary brought this kit to me when she came to visit for festival earlier this year. I had hoped to start working on it again sooner than today. Life has gotten in the way. There have been a lot of distractions and a few plan changes in the last couple of weeks. I found this very interesting fabric in about the middle of the kit. This fabric is reversible! It feels like a batik. There was no selvage, so I have no idea who made it.
I'm done with the cutting for the blocks. I'll cut the setting triangles, border and binding later. I haven't decided on a backing. I have cut over 121 print fabrics for this quilt. I'm adding 1 row to the pattern. Are there any thoughts on how long it will take me to get all the blocks pieced? I actually only need 100 pieced blocks for this quilt.
