I know. It`s incredible. I sewed today...and sewed some more and have made some progress in my Across the Sea QAL quilt top.
My blocks so far...looking very rough and ready...threads need to be cut and they also need to be squared up. I am not looking forward to that part. I don`t have a square ruler yet so I`ll be getting the masking tape out again. It`s already on the sewing machine so that I can do a scant quarter inch seam. Yes, I know. I need a new machine and when I`m next in England I`m going to buy one! Any recommendations for a mid-range machine gratefully received.
Had I been doing the baby quilt I would almost have caught up...but I`m not. I`m doing the lap quilt so that`s another eight blocks then. As I`m a bit of a slow coach, that`s about another 3 hours. Then I have to square up the blocks, arrange them in a lovely way, sew them together and then make the scrappy border, the white outer border, sew them to the quilt top and I`ll have caught up. Phew. It`s been like a day at the office but a good day. Of course, thinking aloud, I could just do the baby quilt...no...piecing is probably my favourite step in the whole process. I like piecing.
Linking up with Fabric Tuesday.
