The Story So Far...Not a Lot of Chapters!...

My story so far...
The chapters are incomplete...there is still a fair bit of story to be written for each block...it seems my modus operandi for this quilt is one technique at a time, who knows why it is just how it is speaking to me, so applique is happening first, stitchery will be next once all the appliques are ticked off so it will be a little while before I have actual blocks to go on the sidebar. But as I'm now up to the applique for the March blocks while March has some weeks left in it so I'm counting that as on track(ish)...it's my version of the track, I have so much trouble travelling in a straight line *LOL*...

Oh and I know the appliques are backwards and yes that is the back cover of the book..but when you don't realise you've done that until way after it is too late, it is time to move on and just live with it...so I am...

Happy Stitching

Hey Annette! Slow progress is still progress, so I'd say that'a a plus. Hmmm ... with your book if you hadn't put stitching etc on it yet I was going to suggest you just turn your block upside down to right the book. Still ... you'll always be able to pick your quilt out of a line up, right?! :0) Enjoy your stitching! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Its all meant to be personalised and individualised - so as I said to Fiona at Dragon Fly (previous post) if you want to read books from the end backwards - thats fine!!

I love moving on and just living with it! ;) I may make that my new motto! (I have some backwards in my collection of appliques too) I am loving your collection of blocks. Once you get to the putting together stage those letters will pop up really quickly.
