One Step at A Time .....

Thanks for the reminders Chooky - it really does help to keep me focussed

I have been working on finishing my quilt top.....

I made a backing using up left over fabric (and some matching metreage I had)


the quilt has been sandwiched and pinned....


... and quilting has started....


I'm expecting aching shoulders this weekend....

I wonder if you will too??

Wow...your quilt is amazing...good job!! I need to hurry up...

Susie said...

oh wow! Love the backing but especially appreciate the quilting pics. I have not even thought about doing mine and would never have thought to use FMQ around the applique outlines!!! All food for thought for when I (eventually) get to that stage. Keep up the lovely work and look forward to seeing (detailed) pics at the end!! lol. Happy Stitching, Susie
