Now For The Last…

border. This will be another time consuming border, when I have to applique all my hexies down.
I have just finished piecing borders 13 & 14. I think the pressing of all the seams was the hardest part, and I started doing it so carefully I thought it would take me two days to do it, so I thought …,what the hell… just go for it, which I don’t usually do.

Hopefully I’ll be able to handquilt it around all those seams!

Thanks for keeping up with my progress. I still have about 10 large hexagons and about 20 small one to make, so better get with it!

Plugging away…

With Mrs Billings. I’m on my time target – I hope. Now onto Borders 13 and 14.  Lots and lots of cutting and sewing!
A photo to show my progress so far. Its very hard to take a photo of the whole quilt as its getting too large.
This is up to border 12

I laid it outside ( hopefully no ants have sneaked into a seam) as I would have to shift the furniture to get a photo.

This photo is 2 rounds of borders 13 & 14. Two more to go!
Thankfully I am walking with my neighbour for an hour every morning, which makes up for me sitting at the machine for about 6 hours a day at the moment! I am on a mission to get the quilt pieced by Easter, so I can get my quilting friend Judy to baste it, so I can start hand quilting.

Cyclone Lusi is on her way….

A photo in our morning newspaper


Remember the saying Red Sky in the morning – a shepherds warning!

I will be hunkered down sewing my Mrs Billings. Had a bit of a stop work on my quilt, due to having my sister stay for a couple of weeks. We were out shopping and site seeing nearly every day. Great time!

I have sewn one corner, but have 3 more to do, so thats the plan for the weekend!

The trouble with leaving the sewing for 2 weeks, I thought I had done more than I had! Bah!

I also managed to finish off the Baby Quilt I was making for my sister’s Great Grand-daughter Skylah, so she could take it home with her for the baby. This will be great for the wee one to lay on the floor on, but will also fit on her first bed.
