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

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

Lookin' Good Chris!! Almost there...can't wait to see the finished quilt. Have you picked out the quilting yet?

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 25d ago

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
