I’ve finally finished all the squares and have sewn the sashing - what a PAIN that was!!!! Anyway it’s as good as I can get. Next will be some borders. Love Chris

Wow Chris that is looking fantastic can't wait to see it finished. What a Heirloom that will be don/t forget to add a piece of your hair in the back somewhere, a quilt lady told me that when I was making mine a few years ago. I placed mine under the label I put on it as she suggested with details of the year it was made etc.Love the colours you have used as well Val

The sashing really adds to the dimension of the quilt. This is one the should be displayed at quilt shows! Truly a work of art.

Ha ha ha, you and me both! I've got about over 15 other pieces I did originally that I didn't think were good enough. So I might use them in a runner or something like a pillow! Love Chris

Hi Kim, thanks for commenting. No, I haven't picked out the quilting yet, I don't want it to be too visible as I want the stitching to be prominent. I may get my quilter to just put a wide stipple of some kind. I'll see what designs she has. Love Chris

Getting there Chris! Looks really great, how are you going to quilt it, or is this a quilt as you go?

1 comment
pennifold by pennifold 27 Sep 2018

Hi Mary, I send it to my quilter who has a long arm machine. This is not a quilt as you go. It's just a piece of fabric on stabiliser and then the pattern is just machine embroidered. I then sewed sashing and decided to put the little pieces in the middle opposite to the sashing. It was a lot of work but it looks good. Love Chris
