So Saturday was one of Chookys zoom sessions, she promised a marathon, and that is what we got.
Well some of us did. I had to go off to work at 3pm (NZ) and returned again at 10.30, when I found a few ladies still chatting.
Before work I was busy with Lucy and made a little progress. First I set about topping up my supply of one inch blue squares and also prepared a bunch of white honey combs, for the border treatments.
Yes, it's getting that close.
My supervisor spent most of the day curled up asleep on the sofa next to my chair, although she did make time for some personal grooming.
Once I was done with the prep work I got on to the task of adding blocks to the top, after I had added some blue inchies to the blocks I wrestled them on to the top one at a time. I only had time to add two and prep a third before I had to prepare for work.
I have almost completed the penultimate row of crosses. Just one more block required.
As you can see, Belle had to take the opportunity to inspect progress while Tony held it up this morning.
I really do need to work out how I want the edge of the quilt to look and get papers prepped for the final rounds.
Poor pictures I'm afraid as it is very overcast here today, so we had an indoor photoshoot with artificial lighting.
I'm really pleased with how this one is turning out and must confess that although I am excited to be so close to finishing the planned 5x6 layout I am tempted to add more blocks.....
I know I have plenty of blue fabrics left, I wonder if I can find more of that white?
Time to go and complete the chores I should have done yesterday. LOL
