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. 
Thanks for dropping by

Your Mrs Billings is looking so good Sue! It makes me want to put it on my 'to do' list straight away!!! Sounds lke you will have some hand quilting to do over winter :-) I loved seeing your grand-daughter sew, her cushion is lovely. And Skylah's quilt also is a grat finish (catch up reading!!).

Wow! You are very dedicated to a big project, aren't you? How diligent of you to be sticking to this long-term effort. I admire you for that, as much as I admire your quilt!
