Very Slow Progress

I have planned to spend the whole day yesterday sewing to complete my quilt.  Life has a way of getting in the way.  On Wednesday evening, my DD announced that her student accommodation was ready now for her to move into, a week early!!  So I spend the day packing not sewing.   The up side to this,  I do not have to spend next week being her personal taxi to her university in the city.
As I wanted to show lots of photos of my progress ending with a complete quilt, I now will have to wait a little longer.  So here are some photos of the blocks.  


I love all the quilts that the wonderful the stitchers have finished and posted so far.  I feel my choice of fabrics are boring and plan to be a little bolder with the next stitch-along!!
I will post again next week. I am still hopeful to have finished by the end of the month.  Thanks for all the comments and encouragement.

I love your binding colors. They are rich and make the embroider pop.
The best laid plans....and all that. I went to the studio with the thought of making great progress, started sewing my wall hanging together and had to take one block out twice because I sewed it on either sideways or upside down....so it wasn't to be.
