I feel like I've had a productive day.
I sat down and sewed the rest of my quilt top squares together, with sashing between them and sashing all round. 5 hours it took me to sew 5 more rows together, cut more sashing, sew more together, iron them along the way, cut more sashing and then sew sashing on all around the edge. And I think it was worth the effort.
Wouldn't you agree?
I love it.
I think it is the best one yet.
I giggled like an idiot when I hung it on the line and tried to take pics of it - it was a bit breezy today but at least the wind blew the clouds away. I am very happy with how it has turned out.
Alas, now I have to figure out a backing for it and then get down on my hands and knees (in the loungeroom, where I have plenty of space (!!! - the loungeroom only has a small amount of non-loungeroom stuff in it now, amazing, it's only taken me what 10 months since we moved back in....)) and bast the beggar so I can quilt it. And I'll have to work out a binding for it too. It is almost as wide as a queen size bed and a bit over a pillow width short of covering the whole bed.
I think I should use some left over quilt batting to make some knee pads for me. I think we have some of the really high density foam packing material in the garage too - that might be nice for some added cushioning!
I have plenty more to share with you, having pulled my finger out and edited pics, but slowly slowly! Can't use up all my pics and surprises too quickly...
