And here it is! This is the best picture I could get. Lynda suggested skirt hangers across a wardrobe, but I have a walk in /dressing room, so that wasn't going to work. With a little more effort, this will work just fine in future. ;-)
So my finished top. I did think about doing something more adventurous for that final border, but the math gave me a headache. LOL Then as I was stitching the pieces together I wondered if it would have been better without the neutrals, but I'm happy with this as it is. Once again, this picture was taken with a flash. The colours really are much prettier in real life. It's clicky for a bigger picture.Even though it measures 94 x 112 inches, it's made very little impression on my scraps box. Before I tidied up last night I put together a back. It's made up from three old sheets! Yes three!! LOL The flat part of the valance sheet I used to sash the top, another whole piece and a slice from a third. I'll have to see if I can replenish my store of recycled cotton sheets. Not so easy in these days of quick drying poly cotton. I have one spare star block which will become the label. I fell asleep last night dreaming about how to quilt this thing. Circles, CIRCLES? My muse wants circles. I suppose the fact that one or two corner stones continued to misbehave, means that straight lines are out and I'll go with circles. But first, I have to layer and pin it.
It's day 2 of eleven days off, and already I have that huge sense of achievement.
I'm off to Wii for an hour or so, take care.
