It's so good to finish

Another border sewn. The leaves always take some time to sew, but I like how they look.




and then the final border. I think this is the perfect place to use the Pillar print.


The next top has been on the go for many, many years. I started these blocks 10, maybe 12 years ago and found each one to take quite a number of hours to needleturn so it only got pulled out when I had nothing else to sew. After getting it out a couple of weeks ago and finding I only had two and a bit to finish it I set to and got them done. All the fabrics are from the Lancaster County III and unfortunately I have now discovered all the reds bleed. When the weather improves it will go into the washing machine with a bundle of Colour Catchers and fingers crossed.



A sewing machine project with some bright and modern fabrics. So much brighter than it looks here. 50 made and 50 to go. I need to decide if I sash the blocks or not and what colour to use. The same background grey if I need it larger or a colour or white. Mmm.

Congrats on getting the last border on. It is soooo gorgeous! Sorry to hear the reds bleed. It is a beautiful quilt and so many hours already spent towards its making. It would be a shame to spoil it. Good luck with the washing. ;^)

Amazing work, three very different projects, but all beautifully executed.

Good to have a variety of styles on the go. I love the leaves, I could applique leaves all day long. Maybe the last blocks don't need a sashing, they look good as they are.
