Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post. I agree, the best part about baking is the cleaning up. I just love having my helpers around to do that. :-)
So here's what I'm plodding on slowly with. I have three out of four rows ready for me to hand sew the sashing on the back.
Once that is done I can cut and attach the longer sashing in between the rows.. I have used the same fabric to shash both front and back. In keeping with most of the fabrics in this quilt, it is a Fig Tree Fabric. It's kind of hard to see here, but it's a beautiful buttery yellow with white polka dots. Yum!
I have a late shift today, so I hope to get the final row sashed and make a start on the hand sewing. Then I'll have to make a decision about whether or not to use corner stones, or just go for straight sashing. What do you think?
Following our visit to Birmingham, Mother is once again on my case. Yes she has some projects for me to complete, but she also wants me to start showing my quilts. Something I've never done before, except here of course, and for one or two good friends who visit my home. Well, the local Horticultural society are having their annual show on Saturday. As well as all the horticulture, they have baking and craft sections, and I thought I might enter 'The Shirt off His Back'.
This means of course I'll have to unstick my finger and make a label for it.
Please wish me luck.
Where did my sewing machine signature go?????
Take care all.
