One of the most time consuming, fiddly jobs ever, but totally worth the effort. I have been using up scraps to make 2 inch strips to incorporate into the blocks for the wedding quilt. When I started, I sorted out a pile of scraps and set them aside in a shoe box. The jumble of pieces in the box is now rapidly dwindling, so much so that I am wondering whether there will be much left once it comes to making a strip for the border of the quilt.
At the moment I am making great progress with piecing the blocks. I have already finished six, all measuring 21 inches square, and have three more to make in the same size. After that I will be making the blocks for the border, twelve measuring approximately 15 x 21 inches, and four 15 inch square corner blocks. I am hoping to get most of the piecing done before the New Year, and then go shopping for the wadding and backing fabric in January.
It is years since I made a large quilt. I had forgotten how much I enjoy it. The weather has been dull and dreary, ideal for staying in, but useless for photos. If the sun shines soon, I shall have to take some photos ready for my progress report later this week.
Andrée is hosting Free Motion Mavericks at the moment, so I am linking up to her blog just in the nick of time before the linky closes!
