Some ladies have been asking for a close up of the border piecing.  Please excuse the photos as I am not at home and have not pressed the border yet.  The first photo is the front and the second is the back with some papers left in so you can see the placement better.


All hand piece EPP done for now.  I want to get this baby machine basted ( it's too big for me) and then I will hand quilt it.  Hoping to have it finished for an exhibition later in the year.  I started this quilt at the beginning of last year and have enjoyed it very much, especially watching everyone else on Facebook also making the same journey.

Row four has been added, this quilt is going together so quickly.  I have another three rows then a border. There are half rows top and bottom, but I might do it a bit different.

Can you see the problem here, the background blocks are very similar, will I worry, I don't think so!


An update on La Pass, nearly finished piecing the border, then to square it up with a little bit of help from my friend Shirley.

I will get it machine basted so I can hand quilt.  I am a bit more relaxed about this quilt now that I have a ton of the border material (not easy to find).


Two inserts done, four to go.  Just making sure it looks ok.  A bit slow going, but still enjoying the journey.

The blue centres of the diamonds are all the same material, but fussy cut from different areas, only have a fat quarter and challenged myself not to purchase more, happy so far.

I am also really liking the look of the back, although a bit concerned with how to quilt through all those layers.  That won't be for a while, so I have plenty of time to think about it.
